The sales tax increase in Los Angeles County will help to improve freeway traffic flow and safety, repair streets and sidewalks, synchronize traffic signals, earthquake-retrofit bridges, expand public transit systems, create jobs, and keep fares affordable for seniors, students, and the disabled, said Board of Equalization member Jerome Horton.

The half-cent sales tax increase approved by Los Angeles County voters in November 2016 – Measure M went into effect on July 1. The increase applies to every city and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County, bringing the countywide sales and use tax rate to 9.25 percent.

“The sales tax increase enacted by the passage of Measure M, the Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan, proposes to improve freeway traffic flow and safety, repair streets and sidewalks, synchronize traffic signals, earthquake-retrofit bridges, expand public transit systems, create jobs, and keep fares affordable for seniors, students, and the disabled,” said Board of Equalization Member Jerome Horton.
