The Executive Committee voted on April 4th to support Proposition 411, which offers a means of funding road and infrastructure repairs WITHOUT raising local taxes.
In 2017 the citizens of the city of Tucson passed a half-cent sales tax called Proposition 101 to generate $150 million in revenue, 60% of which was allocated to public safety resources rather than roadway safety elements. This half-cent tax is set to expire this year, and voters will be asked to extend the tax on the ballot by means of Proposition 411 in a special election on May 17, 2022. This will generate an additional $590 million to be set aside exclusively for local road and street repair in Tucson over the next 10 years.
Tucson’s streets NEED repairs, and we urge all Pima County voters to vote YES and approve Proposition 411 this May!
