Hillsborough County Corporate Welfare

Transportation impact fees developers pay for new development.
Hillsborough County: $770 for a new home
Pasco County: 10,000 for a new home

"The County Commission is now considering a major overhaul of the transportation impact fees developers pay for new development. For too long, the fees has left taxpayers burdened with gridlock and paying most of the cost for new roads. For the past two years, I have worked with Sierra Club and we have taken the lead in a campaign to have new development pay more of its fair share and to use transportation fees as a tool to encourage smart growth. This plan is a big break from the status quo."
