Florida Matters: Pinellas Mass Transit Tax Hike Referendum

Florida Matters: Pinellas Mass Transit Tax Hike Referendum

In 2014, voters in Pinellas County will decide whether to raise their sales taxes to pay for major upgrades to the county's public transportation system. That would include what could become the Bay Area's first light rail. Supporters say it's the only solution to the county's gridlocked roads and would boost the local economy. Critics say light rail is a boondoggle and would strap Pinellas taxpayers with the highest sales tax rate in the state - with very little to show for it.
