California effort would make it easier to pass tax increases
Land Line
An effort halfway through the California statehouse would lower the voter threshold for approving local transportation-related tax questions.

The Assembly voted 54-25 to advance to the Senate a proposed amendment to the state constitution, ACA8, that would drop the voter threshold from 66.67 percent to 55 percent.
