AB 467 (Mullin) Local transportation authorities: transactions and use taxes

Position:Watch
Status:Chaptered
Summary:
The Local Transportation Authority and Improvement Act provides for the creation in any county of a local transportation authority and authorizes the imposition by the authority, by ordinance, of a retail transactions and use tax, subject to approval of the ordinance by 2/3 of the voters. Existing law provides for the authority to adopt a transportation expenditure plan for the proceeds of the tax, and requires the entire adopted transportation expenditure plan to be included in the voter information guide sent to voters.
 
This bill, upon the request of an authority, would exempt a county elections official from including the entire adopted transportation expenditure plan in the voter information guide, if the authority posts the plan on its Internet Web site, and the sample ballot and the voter information guide sent to voters include information on viewing an electronic version of the plan on the Internet Web site, as prescribed, and for obtaining a printed copy of the plan by calling the county elections office. The bill would require the county elections official to mail a printed copy of the plan at no cost to each person requesting a copy, if the county elections official exercises this authority.
