Background Information

The Sacramento Transportation Authority (STA) was created in 1988 when Sacramento County's electorate approved Measure A. In passing Measure A, the voters imposed a countywide one-half percent sales tax to be levied over a 20-year period (1989-2009). The proceeds of the tax were used to fund a comprehensive program of roadway and transit improvements, including highway, street, and road construction; highway, street, and road maintenance; bus and light rail capital and operations; improved transportation services for elderly and handicapped persons; and transportation-related air quality programs.

"New" Measure A

The Sacramento Transportation Authority placed a measure on the November 2004 ballot to renew the Measure for 30 more years after the original measure expires. Voters overwhelmingly approved the new Measure A, with more than 75 percent of voters in favor of it. The "new" Measure A took effect April 2009.
