Sonoma and Marin Counties, CA

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Passed, 68% - 32%

In November 2006, Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit lost a sales tax measure to fund the 70-mile SMART passenger rail-and-trail project by slightly more than one percent. The proposal has been slightly modified and county officials have voted to place the quarter-cent sales tax measure on the November ballot. It would raise $890 million over 20 years, with annual revenues of about $45 million to pay for a train system running from Cloverdale to Larkspur that would cost $450 million to build and $19.3 million a year to operate.
