Below is an excerpt from this insightful article on the new sales tax measure.
The sales tax measure will require approval by two-thirds of the voters. This is a steep climb and won’t be achieved by emphasizing enormous new highway projects that lead to more cost and harm to the environment. Support can only be achieved by investing in alternatives while providing for prudent maintenance of our existing roadways.
This isn’t about taking away people’s cars. It is about planning, common sense, and sustainable priorities.
