Kansas City, MO

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Passed, 65% - 35%

On April 8, voters will be asked to renew the three-eighth cent bus sales tax that is set to expire in April 2009. If voters approve ballot question # 1, the tax will be extended for fifteen years. Voters originally approved it in 2003. The future of this tax for the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority’s buses has been uncertain since November 2006, when voters approved a plan that would take revenue from the tax and apply it to the development of light rail.
