Gov apparently did not give enough to the Conservation Groups

The Sierra Club has come out against the 1 cent hike for transit.

Their complaint? Only 18% is dedicated to transit and light rail. Not very surprising, but their focus is on the Tucson-to-Phoenix passenger rail service.

Interestingly enough, this comes on the heels of other groups coming out against it because it spends too much on those untested transit items. Clearly, we have some crucial transportation needs in this state, but no one can agree on what it is.

If you want to see the plan, you can check it out yourself over at the ADOT page.
