MTA Slapped

New, 4 comments

We pointed out that the MTA was offering new information on its web site about that proposed half-percent sales tax increase that would help fund transportation projects, and now comes this: "The Metropolitan Transportation Authority risked violating state law recently by using its taxpayer-funded Web site to potentially promote its proposed half-percent sales tax increase, the Los Angeles County Counsel's Office has determined. Following the counsel's advice, the agency removed material from the site that appeared to support Measure R, although officials said they may replace it with more neutral phrasing that conforms to state law."
