BRADENTON, Fla. — Florida Gov. Charlie Crist Wednesday visited four cities to conduct the ceremonial signing of the state's first comprehensive passenger rail bill, which has the potential to jump-start the long-delayed central Florida commuter rail project known as SunRail.

In fact, the commission that oversees policy decisions related to SunRail meets today in Orlando and is expected to get an update on the timeline now that Florida, through the recent passage of the rail bill, has resolved liability issues and approved state funding for the project.
