Santa Cruz, CA

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Pass, 67% - 33%

The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission and the Board of Supervisors have approved a 30-year half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements. 20 percent of the estimated $500 million in revenue will go to transit for seniors and disabled people, while some will also go to analysis of rail as a transit option.  A June phone poll of 600 county residents showed that the ballot measure had 68 percent approval, barely above the two-thirds majority needed.
