Sen. Jon Erpenbach: Voters should have a say on RTA
Placeholder Image
A contentious issue in the budget this year was the creation of Regional Transit Authorities (RTA), entities that once created could enact an additional half-cent sales tax to be used for transportation needs in the governed area. While I think RTAs are a good idea to plan for our future transportation goals, I was disappointed with some of the governor's vetoes on this issue.
