How Will Measure R+ Revenue be Spent?
Just after high noon, the Metro Board of Directors voted to place a ballot proposition on the November 2012 ballot to extend the Measure R sales tax’s horizon year from 2039 until 2069. Los Angeles County voters passed the Measure R half-cent sales tax in 2008 to pay for a massive extension of the county’s transit system and specific highway projects. The measure still needs approval from the full State Senate and Governor Brown before going to the ballot. Once on the ballot it needs a two-thirds vote of County voters.
