U.S. Conference of Mayors Follow Villaraigosa's Lead: Endorses Arizona Resolution and 30/10 Transit Plan
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is continuing to build a coalition of support to make sure the city gets a more robust public transportation system in a short time. He also continued to rail against Arizona's controversial immigration law.
Last week at the conference in Oklahoma, the group of more than 125 mayors from across the country unanimously voted to approve a resolution calling on the feds to create policies and programs that would enable Los Angeles to garner a large loan for the the 30/10 initiative. If that would happen, Los Angeles could build 12 major transit projects in 10 years and pay back the loan via the voter-approved sales tax called Measure R.
