What is Measure T?
How would you distribute
Measure T was approved by voters in November 2006. It established the Madera County 2006 Transportation Authority and authorized a ½ cent retail transaction and use tax for 20 years (between April 1, 2007, thru March 31, 2027) specifically to fund transportation projects and programs in the County. Measure T has generated over $164 million to date and allowed the region to leverage an additional $319 million in state and federal matching funds. It is expected to generate a total of $219 million by its current sunset date in 2027.
A renewal effort is being considered for the November 2024 ballot following a failed attempt in 2022. This is NOT a new tax - it is an extension that will include a revised spending plan based on public input.
There are several key differences between the previous effort and the one being considered now:
