Florida Counties' Tax Plan

Florida Legislature
Tampa -

When it comes to promoting their plan, the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) has to overcome several challenges. First, counties have to explain why they believe the House Republican plan doesn't work. They say rollbacks on local spending will financially choke county services. The counties will have to look for alternate funding sources for police, jails and public health. Second, making the Save Our Homes cap portable, they argue, could be unconstitutional. And finally, the counties say, any sales tax should be studied thoroughly.
