The Expenditure Plan Advisory Committee was formed in June 2017 as an advisory committee to the TAM Board of Commissioners. The committee was comprised of volunteers representing diverse stakeholder groups in Marin County. The committee drafted and unanimously agreed upon a draft expenditure plan defining the transportation projects and programs for the 2018 sales tax measure. After minor revisions to the EPAC plan, a final Expenditure Plan, was approved by all cities and towns and the County of Marin, and was ultimately approved by 76.7% of Marin County voters in November 2018.
The committee considered both an extension of the current ½-cent tax and an extension with augmentation for a total of ¾-cent. It was determined extension of the current 1/2-cent tax was preferred.
