St. Louis, MO

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Pass, 60%-40%

A circuit court judge in St. Louis has approved a half-cent sales tax for the April ballot to fund a MetroLink expansion and other projects.  If passed, approximately $12 million per year would be used to secure bonds of an estimated $250 million toward expanding current MetroLink lines. Such a project would be eligible for another $250 million in federal matching funds.  The route, which has been estimated to cost $2.2 billion, would stretch from north St. Louis County near the Florissant Valley campus of St. Louis Community College, into downtown and south St. Louis and down Interstate 55 into south St. Louis County.
