Measure A Ahead in Polls

Measure A, an extension of a 1/2 cent sales tax starting in 2009, is slightly ahead in the polls, with a 68-70% rating. 2/3 vote will be required in order for the measure to pass. If passed, $28 million will be earmarked for the Folsom Dam bypass bridge. Lake Natoma Crossing is now in Folsom, thanks to the previous passing of this measure. Full story in the Telegraph.
