This victorious local government campaign to increase the gasoline tax in Leon County, Florida was implemented in September 2013. The Leon County Commission passed this five-cents-per-gallon gasoline tax increase in 2013, where only two members of the Leon County Commission voted against the tax increase. This new tax was implemented in January 2014 and will generate $4 million during the first year. Half of the new transportation revenue will fund infrastructure and transportation—which has been designated for the city of Tallahassee—while the other half of the funds will be dedicated to Leon County.
