Marin Newspaper Says MTC Toll Plan “Should Not Be a Blank Check”

Marin Independent Journal’s editorial board writes, “The Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the Bay Area’s regional transportation agency, is talking about putting a toll increase on the ballot to raise money for transportation improvements. It should not be a blank check, either for how high tolls could be raised or how the money might be spent.” The editors suggest that MTC might be wise to include in its proposal “a publicly transparent process for its decision-making in spending the revenue generated by the toll increases.”
