One thought on “Legislation

  1. Patrick says:

    The arrogance of the Ballot Question wording is appalling. It assumes the transportation “network” will be improved, when even its proponents say it will do nothing to relieve road traffic congestion. It increases sales tax by a minimum of 14% without saying so. To say this is slanted and disingenuous is an understatement.
