Tucson Voters OK Sales-Tax Increase For Streets, Public Safety

Tucson voters have approved a sales-tax increase. Nearly 62 percent of voters gave the OK to Prop 101 on Wednesday.

City officials estimate the measure will raise $250 million over five years. The money will be split between streets and public safety.

With me to talk about this is Andrea Kelly, a reporter with Arizona Public Media in Tucson.

Lauren Gilger, host of KJZZ's The Show, is an award-winning journalist whose work has impacted communities large and small, exposing injustices and giving a voice to the voiceless and marginalized.
