The Legislature and the Hillsborough County Public Transportation Commission have taken steps to implement the recommendations in our 1999 report. 1/ The Legislature passed Ch. 2001‑299, Laws of Florida, which created the Hillsborough County Public Transportation Commission as an independent special district. The commission has
  • negotiated an inter-local agreement with the Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners and the office of the clerk of the circuit court to clarify its role as an independent special district;
  • monitored the effectiveness of the county's regulatory system and promoted studies to improve the regulatory process; and
  • directed hearing officers to limit the introduction of irrelevant, immaterial, or unduly repetitious evidence during application hearings.
