The All for Transportation (AFT) Sales Tax Ballot Measure on the Hillsborough County November ballot violates Section 8.05 of the County's Charter.
Section 8.05 requires that all County referendums include a Financial Impact Statement (FIS) in the referendum's ballot summary language. The FIS is not included in the AFT sales tax ballot measure.
In 2012 a Charter Amendment was passed by Hillsborough County voters that added Section 8.05 to the County Charter. That Charter Amendment requires a Financial Impact Statement be included in the ballot summary language of any County referendum.
Sec. 8.05. - Financial impact statement for all proposed County Charter amendments and Countywide referenda.
