Election Date:

Salt Lake County, UT

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Passed, 64% - 36%

A quarter-cent sales tax increase would pump tens of millions of new dollars every year into commuter rail, TRAX and road projects to complete them by 2015 rather than 2030.

By voting for Proposition 3, Utahns will fund the building of more TRAX lines, roadways (including the new Mountain View Corridor), and commuter rail. The exact order and priority of the projects will be decided by local government officials. With Proposition 3’s increased funding, many road and rail projects planned for completion 30 years from now can be finished by 2015
