Continued Transit Sales Tax Diversion. This measure asks voters if they support extending the current diversion of 25% of Metro's 1 cent sales tax for construction and maintenance of streets, bridges, pedestrian and bike infrastructure, traffic signals, and streetlamps. Known as the General Mobility Program (GMP), the diversion was first approved by voters in 2003 and is set to expire in 2014. If the referendum is approved, the diversion will continue through 2025.
