Huff: Measure J Could Hinder Transportation Projects
The wording on Measure J does not guarantee that the projects promised under Measure R will be delivered
The measure was approved by the senate recently and puts Measure J on the November ballot for Los Angeles County residents. Huff, who represents Glendora in the State Senate, claims the measure will hurt infrastructure projects slated for funding in the 29th Senate District, according to his staff.
Measure J asks voters to extend the Measure R half-cent sales tax for another 30-year period, from mid-2039 to mid-2069, officials said.
But Huff says the wording of the measure does not contain any guarantees that the projects promised under Measure R will be delivered, and that includes the extension of the Gold Line from Pasadena to Claremont, according to his office.
He also argued that other Inland Valley projects are at risk if voters approve Measure J.
