Proposition M asks voters to approve a half-cent increase in the transit sales tax to support mass transit. The tax increase would be applied in two parts; the first quarter-cent for maintenance of the existing transit system, and the second quarter-cent for expansion of the MetroLink system. Originally scheduled for the February 2008 ballot, the measure was postponed until this November.
