THE GOVERNOR HAS SIGNED ASSEMBLYMEMBER MIKE FEUER'S AB 1446. Passage of this bill authorizes the L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to ask LA County voters to extend the term of the sales tax for transportation that was approved by voters in 2008. The ballot measure extending the sales tax — which is called Measure J — will be on the November 6 ballot.

This extension of the sales tax, from 2039 to 2069, would provide a longer revenue stream that would allow Metro to finance seven transit and eight highway projects now — at a time when interest rates and construction costs are at historic lows and unemployment is high — and complete them within a decade.

Measure J, and these transit and highway projects, are expected to create 250,000 jobs in LA County over the decade. Measure J is a remarkable opportunity to put LA County back to work modernizing our transportation system!
