Measure M could drive LA transportation for the next 4 decades

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority's recent additions to its train network are proving to be popular, and Measure M would finance the next generation. It would raise an estimated $120 billion over the next 40 years to fund new light rail lines, freeway upgrades and bike paths, among other projects. It would do so by creating a permanent, half cent sales tax, and build on similar tax already on the books. But some local leaders say their communities will never see the money.
