February 19, 2020 SacRT in Community

On June 11, 2020, representatives of the University of the Pacific (UOP) Center for Business & Policy Research published and presented their study of the economic impact of the proposed Sacramento County Measure A Transportation Sales Tax.

With the advent of COVID-19 and the corresponding economic impact of the pandemic, there has been significant discussion on how quickly the economy can recover once this public health crisis is under control. As history demonstrates, one of the best solutions for an ailing economy is the implementation of meaningful infrastructure investment to create jobs and stimulate economic activity.

To test this conclusion, transportation stakeholders, STA staff and researchers from UOP, worked on determining the economic impact of the proposed ballot measure. UOP completed its review and the report can be accessed here:
