The Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) voted on 5/17 to split potential Measure D money between North and South County after taking roughly $140 million off the top for a Highway 101 widening project between Santa Barbara and Ventura. The remaining $910 million will be divvied up by regional subcommittees to local and regional projects. Should voters elect to back the transportation sales tax in November 2008, SBCAG staff expects $1.05 billion to be raised over the next 30 years.
