TAMPA — County Comissioner Stacy White is asking a judge to speed up the timeline on his lawsuit challenging the one-cent transportation sales tax voters passed in November.White's attorney, Chris Altenbernd, wrote in a motion filed Wednesday that the tax takes effect on Jan. 1 and "it would be better to resolve this case faster rather than slower."Another reason: Altenbernd is leaving for a three-week prepaid anniversary trip to New Zealand with his wife on Jan. 14 and wants this settled before then.The emergency motion argues that the case should be "a relatively straightforward decision for the Court," because a majority of the counts raised in the lawsuit focus on whether the county tax is inconsistent with state lawWhite filed the lawsuit on Dec. 4 asserting that the charter amendment voters approved to raise money for transportation projects is in conflict with Florida statutes.
