Measure J is the proposal to extend the Measure R half-cent sales tax for 30 years beyond its mid-2039 expiration date to try to accelerate transit and road projects.
The state bill that would allow the issue to go to Los Angeles County voters on November 6 had been approved by the Assembly earlier this summer but another vote needed to be taken on the amended version of the bill recently okayed by the state Senate.
Here is the update from Metro’s government relations staff:
Today, the California State Assembly granted final passage of AB 1446 (Feuer) by voting to concur in the bill as amended in the State Senate. As of the writing of this alert, the total votes are 52-20. The bill now moves to the Governor’s desk for signature.
