Hillsborough commissioners vote to draft a transportation tax ordinance

Hillsborough County has once again made a move to bolster public transportation and infrastructure. The latest decision comes after the Florida Supreme Court struck down a Hillsborough County transportation sales tax that was passed with 57% of the vote back in 2018.


On March 23, the Hillsborough County Commission voted 6-1 in favor of a new 1% surtax intended to improve the overall quality of existing infrastructure, as well as fund new projects.
