TAMPA BAY – Mayor of Tampa Bob Buckhorn during his State of the City lobbied for a half cent sales tax to be on the November ballot for transportation.
Buckhorn says Tampa needs improvements to its roads, expansion of buses and likes the idea of a possible light rail. Tampa ranked 15th worst city in the nation for traffic congestion.
Floridians inherently reject anything involving tax hikes. Florida is a tax haven but this is something that needs to be addressed before the 11th hour hits.
