Light-Rail Expansion Not The Best Reason For New Tax
"'No part of the Valley that doesn't want light rail is being forced to have it,' Zuercher said. 'It's all part of a package and a comprehensive plan that gives a multitude of (transportation) options. If you want to pick out individual pieces, this plan falls apart.' People who fought against Phoenix's successful light-rail ballot measure in 2000 already are mounting a new anti-rail campaign. Last week, the Goldwater Institute, a conservative think tank, released a report calling light rail a waste of taxpayer money because too few people would use it."
