Marin Transportation Authority Will Poll Voters on Extending and Raising Sales Tax for Transportation Projects

Marin Independent Journal reports, “Marin transportation officials will conduct a poll to gauge willingness among voters to extend and possibly increase a half-cent sales tax first approved more than a decade ago.” The report adds, “At a half cent, the tax brings in close to $25 million annually. Another one-eighth would bump that up by $5 million annually, with a one-fourth cent increase adding another $11.5 million, transportation officials say.”
