Propositions 1A, 1B: Will Voters Approve Big Money for Transportation?
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Governor Schwarzenegger and legislative Democrats are campaigning together this week, claiming to put partisanship aside in favor of five propositions on next month's ballot. We look at the first two, which deal with the gasoline tax and a bond issue worth $20 billion--all for roads, freeways and public transit. It would be the biggest transportation investment in 50 years.
Governor Schwarzenegger spent last week signing bills with George Clooney by his side and Tony Blair appearing by video linkup. Today and tomorrow he'll be putting partisanship aside as he tours the state with top Democrats, advocating a package of propositions on next month's ballot. Phil Angelides won't be going along, even though he backs the same measures. We look at the first two, Proposition 1A and 1B, which deal with the gasoline tax and a bond issue worth $20 billion--all for roads, freeways and public transit. It would be the biggest transportation investment in 50 years.
