ABOUT THIS STORY
All Aboard Florida has $3 billion riding on a passenger train project that could be derailed if Florida denies just one of the 17 permits the company needs to proceed.

To answer that question, Treasure Coast Newspapers pored over lobbyist compensation databases, state campaign finance reports and state and federal records, and conducted more than a dozen interviews to see how the companies invested money in Florida's political machine.
