Measure V - Transportation Expenditure Plan

MCAG is proposing a 1/2 cent sales tax dedicated to transportation for the November 2016 general election that is projected to generate $450 million in new revenue over 30 years.  In January 2016, the 24 member Transportation Expenditure Plan Steering Committee recommended an expenditure plan to the MCAG Governing Board outlining a flexible approach to providing transportation funding directly to local governments and setting aside funding for projects of regional benefits along our highways and regionally significant corridors. 

The proposed expenditure plan allocates the estimated $15 million in new annual revenue to the following funding categories: 
  • Regional Projects (east and west side shares)
  • Local Projects and Alternative Modes Projects
  • Transit
  • Administration
