The Broward County Commission is continuing to hope for a transportation sales tax. The Commission discussed it on April 10 and provided the County Attorney with some suggestions as to what they would like to see on the ballot. It will come back for further review at a future date. It was not discussed today.
The Broward Commission wants a one percent charter county and regional transportation system sales surtax earmarked for transportation and transit projects countywide. If approved by the Commission, voters will have the opportunity to vote on the transportation sales tax increase on November 6, 2018. The transportation sales surtax has the potential to generate an estimated $16 billion over thirty years.
