Elk Grove News Podcasts - Sacramento Transportation Authority's tax hike challenges

In 2016, the Sacramento Transportation Authority's Measure B sales tax hike was narrowly defeated. | 

In Sacramento County there is a little-known agency whose profile will resurface like a cicada in the coming months. That agency is the Sacramento Transporation Authority – or the STA.

The STA is a multi-jurisdictional agency that disburses funds from a special county-wide sales tax for transportation projects. On Thursday, November 14, the STA held their monthly meeting to discuss the possibility of placing a sales tax increase on the November 2020 Sacramento County-wide ballot.

In this edition, we’ll give an overview of that meeting, listen to some of the public comments, and look at the challenges facing the STA with a possible sales tax measure on next year’s ballot.
