Straw Man #52: Move LA Proposes A 45-Year Half-Cent Sales Tax That Generates $93 Billion


Here’s version #52 of our Straw Man proposal, the product of one year of conversations with Move LA's coalition — business, labor, environmentalists, faith-based groups, seniors, the disabled, students, community-based organizations, elected officials, and others — about the priorities they would like to see funded in the next round of LA County transportation investments. Our Straw Men are framed largely by Measure R, which allocates funding by category (Rail, Local Return, Transit Operations, etc.). We’ve added program areas that were not in Measure R, however, to call out investments in bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, in goods movement technology and infrastructure, in major arterials and boulevards, and in enhanced services for seniors, those with disabilities and students. We want your feedback! Email with Straw Man #52 in the subject line!
