Posted on November 14, 2014

The Transportation Policy Leadership Group, made up of all of the Hillsborough County commissioners and the mayors of Tampa, Temple Terrace and Plant City, is in the process of devising a plan to fund transportation for economic development. Its members have discussed placing a referendum on the 2016 ballot for a 1-cent sales tax to pay for transportation upgrades. The tax would raise about $6 billion over 30 years.
