Election Date:
November 04, 2003

Tucson, AZ

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Loss

Results: Failed, 36%-64%

Two proposals will appear side by side on the November ballot. Citizens for a Sensible Transportation Solution gathered enough signatures to force an election on half the plan, which calls for a 13-mile light-rail line, expansion of bus lines and money for neighborhood street repairs. Forty percent dedicated to improving Sun Tran and Van Tran services and creating a 47-mile "rapid bus" service, and 22 percent to design, build and operate a 13-mile light rail "starter" line.

New revenue sources:

  • 0.3% increase to the City of Tucson sales tax
  • 4% increase in the City of Tucson construction sales tax and the dedication of that tax to these projects
