New sales tax seems to be dead

Thanks to Scott Walker, Rep. Scott Gunderson, Rep. Samantha Kerkman, Rep. Steve Nass, and Rep. Robin Vos for coming out so quickly and opposing the new proposed sales tax for the new rail system.

Mayor Barrett, as usual, kinda waffled on it. He opposed adding the buses to the new tax, but he did not oppose the tax for just the rail system.

A proposed three-county sales tax for commuter trains and public buses is certain to be reworked in the face of swift opposition from local leaders and state legislators Thursday.

However, this issue is not dead. My guess is that these folks will continue to push this new rail system down our throats, whether we want it or not.
