Measure M


Measure M is a transportation tax and spending plan brought forward by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and placed on the November 2016 ballot by the County Board of Supervisors.

The Gateway Cities Council of Governments has adopted a resolution opposing Measure M because while MTA’s spending plan includes projects throughout LA County, projects of critical importance to the southeast region have been given lower priority than projects in more affluent parts of the county and will not be completed for decades.

Because Measure M would double the transportation sales tax rate approved by voters in 2008 and have no expiration date, and because Measure M sets county transportation priorities for the next 40 years, the Gateway Cities Council of Governments believes voters must have full information about the timetable and effects of this measure before voting.
