A key legislator who oversees the Florida Highway Patrol's budget said a high-ranking FHP official had no authority under state law to order troopers to write more tickets. He specified that it was not a quota, but a chance to support the Statewide Overtime Action Response (SOAR).

Florida state troopers are among the lowest-paid in the country, though the recent SOAR initiative encourages them to work the roads more by bumping up their pay.

. Mark Welch of Troop H sent out the email. In an email obtained by the Times, Welch wrote that figure "is not good enough". He called it "a goal to reach".

Lt. Col. Mike Thomas said Welch's word choice was off and he was not imposing a quota.

"It's like a want", Thomas said.
