Information on Measure J posted to Metro website

A web page for Measure J can now be found on the Metro website.

Measure J is a ballot measure that seeks to extend the half-cent Measure R sales tax for 30 years beyond its mid-2039 expiration date in order to accelerate some Measure R transit and road projects.

It will be on the Nov. 6 ballot in Los Angeles County if Gov. Jerry Brown signs a state bill, AB 1446, that would allow the issue to go to voters. The ballot measure will need two-thirds approval from voters to pass.
