A bill possibly delaying the start of rail service between Miami and Orlando is gaining support, according to WPTV.

Martin County Sheriff William Snyder says he is in favor of Senate Bill 386, creating the Florida High-Speed Passenger Rail Safety Act.

Brightline said law enforcement wouldn’t be held up a railroad crossing for more than 60 seconds.

Writers of Senate Bill 386 say the bill aims to increase public safety and would require the railway to install fences along its tracks.

Brightline told the Miami Herald a fence would not increase safety and would further delay the start of trips between West Palm Beach and Orlando.
