A coalition of Santa Clara community organizations criticised a proposes BART tax plan for meeting transit needs of minorities and low-income families. The coalition said that the majority of tax funds will be used " helping out-of-county commuters" use the BART but ignores "basic urban bus service" used by low-income families."A week from today, county supervisors will vote on whether to place a 20-year, half-cent sales tax measure on the November ballot to help pay for a BART extension from Fremont to San Jose. The tax would raise $3.8 billion, about half of which is earmarked to build the 22-mile link. The other half would pay for other transit and highway improvements."
