Florida State Road 101

State Road 101 is a 1.209-mile-long state highway in Duval County, in the First Coast part of the U. S. state of Florida. It connects SR A1A to the south side of Naval Station Mayport on Maine Street. Along its route, SR 101 meets the east end of SR 116. At the south end of SR 101, Mayport Road continues on SR A1A to Atlantic Boulevard. After going under the SR A1A/SR 10 bridge, Mayport Road becomes Florida Boulevard. There is an erroneous exit sign on SR 10 east for the southern end of Mayport Road, it says the exit is for SR 101, however the road is SR A1A north at this point. SR 101 begins at an intersection with SR A1A at the northern end of Atlantic Beach, heading north on four-lane divided Mayport Road through a portion of Jacksonville; the road passes through areas of homes and businesses before becoming a five-lane road with a center left-turn lane and coming to an intersection with the eastern terminus of SR 116. Following this, the state road heads between wetlands to the west and wooded neighborhoods to the east as a four-lane undivided road.

SR 101 reaches its northern terminus at the entrance to Naval Station Mayport. Mayport Road was added to the state highway system in the 1940s as State Road 560. In the 1945 renumbering it was assigned the State Road 101 designation; when SR A1A was realigned from its original northern terminus of Jacksonville to cross the Mayport Ferry, SR 101 was truncated. The entire route is in Jacksonville, Duval County

Complete Auto Transit, Inc. v. Brady

Complete Auto Transit, Inc. v. Brady, 430 U. S. 274, is a United States Supreme Court case regarding the Commerce Clause and sales tax. Complete Auto was an auto transporter involved in moving General Motors vehicles from the railhead at Jackson, Mississippi to dealerships in Mississippi; the Mississippi State Tax Commission levied a tax upon Complete Auto "for the privilege of engaging or continuing in business or doing business" in the state of Mississippi. The Court refers to the tax as a "sales tax". Complete Auto argued against the constitutionality of tax, stating that they were part of an interstate operation, involved in transporting vehicles from the factories in Michigan to the dealers in Mississippi. According to Complete Auto, taxation on interstate operations not only discourages interstate commerce but is a violation of the Commerce Clause; the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Mississippi. The ruling established a four-prong test for constitutionality of a tax under the Commerce Clause: Substantial nexus - connection between a state and a potential taxpayer clear enough to impose a tax.

Nondiscrimination - interstate and intrastate taxes should not favor one over the other. Fair apportionment - taxation of only the apportionment of activity that transpires within the taxing jurisdiction. Fair relationship to services provided by the state - company enjoys services such as police protection while in a state. Though Complete Auto asserted that it was a part of an interstate operation, the Court agreed with Mississippi that while operating within the state, it was afforded services, such as police protection, provided for by taxation; the test enunciated in Complete Auto Transit received significant interpretation in Commonwealth Edison Co. v. Montana, 453 U. S. 609. Text of Complete Auto Transit, Inc. v. Brady, 430 U. S. 274 is available from: CourtListener Findlaw Google Scholar Justia Library of Congress Oyez
