Vote No on Question 1 on November 4

On November 4th, Massachusetts voters will decide on a statewide ballot question that would eliminate a portion of the gas tax. If Question 1 passes, it would be a step backwards, causing our roads, bridges, public transportation, bikeways and sidewalks to fall into further disrepair. It will threaten the gains we’ve made towards a sustainable, healthy, and equitable transportation system. More than half our bridges are deficient, unsafe or even closed from the Cape to the Berkshires. Recent reforms and revenues have finally put us on the right track – but Question 1 would derail us, hurting our economy and compromising our safety. Question 1 would eliminate a law that links the state gas tax to inflation. This transportation funding from gas tax indexing is constitutionally protected for transportation.
