TMA Board endorses "No on 6"

The 50 Corridor TMA Board joins first responders, the California Chamber of Commerce, American Lung Association of California, labor and local governments in urging voters to vote "No on Prop 6."

A "No on Prop 6" vote allows more than 6,500 local transportation improvement projects in every California community to continue.  In the Sacramento Region, that's more than $1 billion of projects - many of which are currently underway.  Highway 50 has visibly already benefitted from the legislation Prop 6 seeks to overturn.

(Public sector TMA Board members abstained on this endorsement vote.)
