[Cyclelicious] New comment on California transportation and energy issues on the....

Yokota Fritz has left a new comment on your post "California transportation and energy issues on the...":

I'm on the fence about Monterey Measure Z, but I'm also not actively involved in transportation issues in Monterey County.

The problem is that the state legislature has poached the normal transportation funding source -- the gas tax -- for use in the general budget. That leaves serious shortfalls not only for regular road maintenance but also for the facilities cyclists like as well as public transportation. It's a big problem for every county and I think many localities will have to resort to local taxes to support even a minimal level of transportation funding.
