Santa Barbara's sales tax debate

Hosted by

Next week, voters in the city of Santa Barbara will decide whether or not to raise the city's sales tax from 7.75% to 8.75%. Supporters say money raised from the tax would pay for over $500 million dollars worth of unfunded infrastructure projects, but critics say there aren't enough safeguards in place to ensure the money gets spent that way.
