Metro asked for the "M" in its ballot measure request to the County Board of Supervisors. No more provisional monikers like R2, R2.1 or #metroplan. Metro announced today that the countywide transportation sales tax will be named "Measure M" on the November ballot.

Metro's press release touts "More Mobility, Movement, Motion, Maintenance focus of Metro’s Sales Tax Ballot Measure." What else does that "M" stand for? Maybe Money?

That means that Streetsblog L.A. now has a new "Measure M" category. Plenty more stories are coming about this critically important sales tax proposal as the November election approaches.
