HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — As the Florida Supreme Court continues to debate the All for Transportation tax in Hillsborough County, local leaders were set to put a "Plan B" on November's ballot.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic is putting a halt on that.

Hillsborough County commissioners continue discussion on 'All For Transportation' tax backup plan
