The Florida Department of Transportation now has considerably less money to purchase homes and businesses that are in the way of its proposed TBX expressway project. Tampa City Council member Lisa Montelione said Tuesday morning that at the Hillsborough MPO Livable Roadways meeting the nearly $25 million budgeted has been reduced to half a million dollars. Montelione calls it a huge win for opponents of TBX like Sunshine Citizens.
