Today is the regularly scheduled Metro Board meeting. But there's nothing regular about it. Two very important measures that could give long lasting positive changes to public transit are up for a vote: an increase of the county's sales tax to raise money for projects like the "Subway to the Sea" and the long range transportation plan which would give the region a vision to work towards. The sales tax increase, which has a lot of political support, still depends on a few state votes up in Sacramento, so even after today if Metro passes the measure, we still have to wait for the state politicians to give it a thumbs up as well.
