    That Marin money grab for roads is disgusting. Its for transit, not roads. Expanding capacity will do nothing for greenhouse gases.

    From expenditure plan:

    As an example, the current sales tax
    cannot be used to help build a sorely needed
    direct connector from Northbound Highway
    101 to Eastbound I-580 in San Rafael. The
    current sales tax cannot be used to finish the
    Highway 101 Marin Sonoma Narrows project,
    completing the third lane from Novato to
    Petaluma. In addition, the current sales tax
    cannot be used on local road interchanges
    with Highway 101, many of which are outdated
    and unable to handle current traffic demand.
