This November, voters across the county will vote on Measure M, a plan that would raise the sales tax by a half-cent and extend, indefinitely, the half-cent sales tax set forth by Measure R in 2008.
Measure would ask voters to extend half-percent sales tax that is financing largest expansion of Los Angeles' public transit system, as well as highway upgrades and other projects.
The Los Angeles City Council threw its support Wednesday behind Measure M, the Nov. 8 ballot measure that would fund transit projects with a half cent sales tax hike.
L.A. County transportation officials will decide next week whether to support a proposed November ballot measure that would extend a half-cent sales tax for transit projects that voters first approved four years ago.
Registered voters in the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (Metro) service area are encouraged to hop on board Metro at no charge for a ride to the polls.
