ABC 10: Sacramento sales tax ballot initiative aiming to fund transportation improvements

EXCERPT: “It’s time to reverse the trend of our decaying transportation infrastructure,” said Michael Quigley, executive director of the California Alliance for Jobs, in a news release. “For years Sacramento has been facing increasing commute times, worsening congestion and declining air quality but this November vote will have an opportunity to support change” 

Quigley says we must have a safe, reliable and fully funded transportation system in order to improve Sacramento’s economy.

“Our multi-modal initiative will fast-track our roads and transit systems to move Sacramentans at the speed of the next economy so that we can compete for the jobs of the future,” said Josh Wood, executive director of the Sacramento Region Business Association. “It means more time with your family and less time in a car, train, or bus.”
