Voters split on trans measures; FSUSD school bond lagging – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

In early tallies of California Primary ballots in Solano County, transportation measures G and H appeared headed toward mixed results, passage and rejection, respectively, and voters appeared to give a tentative thumbs down to the $249 million Fairfield-Suisun Unified school bond, Measure J.

At 10:55 p.m. Tuesday, the County Registrar of Voters indicated 44,000 votes, or 663.5 percent, favored Measure G, the Solano County Transportation Improvement Advisory; and 39,683, or 56.81 percent, opposed H, the Solano County 2016 Transactions and Use Tax. Under state law, a simple majority, 50 percent plus 1, is required for passage of the county transportation measures.

Also at 10:55, nearly 11,976 votes, or nearly 54.84 percent, were cast in favor of the school bond. Under state law, the measure must meet a 55 percent, plus 1, threshold to pass.
