Our League has long believed that a dedicated funding source is needed to get us to work and leisure activities and to bring Central Florida’s transit system to a place where we can thrive and compete for corporate headquarters and better paying jobs. We must get serious about helping residents and visitors connect safely, cost-effectively, and seamlessly to their destinations. Inefficient transportation for Orlando means less money for families. The Orange County Commission has proposed a penny sales tax for dedicated transportation funding. You will have the opportunity to VOTE November 8 on this extra penny for transportation. What do you need to know to be prepared to VOTE? Join Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings and other county leaders who will answer our questions about how, how much, why, and why now.


  • Can a penny sales tax get us where we need to be over the next 20 years?
  • What’s in the Transportation Plan and will it get us where we need to be?
  • Why is now the right time to raise taxes when inflation is sharply rising?
  • What assurance is there that the money will be spent on transportation?
  • How is transportation linked to the affordable housing crisis?


Come to this HOT TOPICS September 14th with your questions and get ready to vote on this critical issue.
