The Orange County Transportation Authority’s (OCTA) independent Taxpayer Oversight Committee earlier this month found that OCTA has administered its Measure M half-cent transportation tax appropriately for the 29th consecutive year.
The committee found that the California agency is following the ordinances that were first approved by votes in 1990 and then renewed in 2006, OCTA officials said in a press release.
The 11-member oversight committee monitors OCTA’s use of Measure M funding, approves all changes to the Measure M plan and holds annual public hearings on the expenditure of funds generated by the sales-tax measure.
Measure M funds freeway, street and road, and transit projects. Transit, which includes rail, received 25 percent of the Measure M dollars.
