Which Way Measure J?  
Post-Election & 2012 Transportation Wrap-Up

Tuesday, Nov. 13
10 - 11:30 a.m.




L.A. Area Chamber

350 S. Bixel St.
Los Angeles, CA 90017


Post Nov. 6, we will know the fate of Measure J, the extension of 2008's Measure R half-cent sales tax. The Council will be joined by Metro representatives to either review the implementation of Measure J's passage or how the initiative's failure will impact projects and what's next on the drawing board.

We will also have updates on a number of issues the Council has engaged on throughout the year including:

  • 10 & 110 Metro HOT Lanes, which open on Nov. 10
  • California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) modernization efforts (Don't forget to join the Chamber for a discussion with State Sen. Michael Rubio, new chair of the Environmental Quality Committee, on Oct. 30.)
  • Looking ahead to the next transportation reauthorization
The Transportation & Goods Movement Council addresses all issues related to our region's mobility - highway, rail, air and transit. The council advocates on federal, state and local issues and champions positions that will provide system-wide, regional solutions. The council highlights the importance of transportation and goods movement to the region and nation's economy, while encouraging balanced and sustainable communities.  
Please join us for a regional CEQA roundtable discussion with State Sen. Michael J. Rubio.


Tuesday, Oct. 30
1:30 - 2:30 p.m.
