Results: Failed, 58% - 41%

Would take 30% of the state's sales tax on auto sales and leases - some $870 million a year - and dedicate the revenue to a long list of specified local projects. Among the 45 listed: new freeway interchanges; a new traffic tunnel in Los Angeles; and light- and commuter-rail extensions in Sacramento and the Bay Area. Only 10% of the funds would go for school buses.
