I’m not thrilled the Regional Transit Authority tax increase was approved in the first place.
I am at poverty level when it comes to income, so any increase means I go from ramen noodle dinner to nothing to eat at all. And I have talked to everyone I know, and everyone states that they too voted against the increase, so how exactly did it pass?
Then I got my tab renewal summary, the RTA tax in 2016 was $35, the new RTA tax for 2017 is $112, a $77 increase, which is well over an 80 percent increase.
