Bond Election Watch: $800M in infrastructure and social projects to go before voters in November

PimaCountyAZmapArizona has again made transportation funding news, this time with nearly a $1 billion in new bonds for a variety of infrastructure and social projects.  Voters in Pima County (home to Tucson) will be asked to approve a seven-question, $815 million bond package in November.  This package includes road construction projects as well as funding for road repair, new parks, workforce training, tourism promotion and other projects.  Approximately $200 million will be directed toward road projects, with approximately $160 going toward regional road repairs in the region.

The Arizona Daily Star has more on this proposal, as well as the beginnings of the almost certain political positioning by the opposition.
