Taxpayer Oversight Committee to Conduct 31st Annual Measure M Public Hearing

Measure M, also known as OC Go, is Orange County’s half cent sales tax for transportation improvements. For the past 31 years, Measure M has funded hundreds of local projects that improve travel for residents every day. Measure Mhas enabled enhancements to almost every freeway in the county, synchronized traffic signals and improved streets, intersections and Metrolink commuter rail service in Orange County.

Each year, the Taxpayer Oversight Committee holds a Measure M Annual Public Hearing to review major committee actions taken, financial audit results, and to listen to any public comments relating to the implementation of Measure M. The next hearing will take place on June 14, 2022 at 6 p.m. at OCTA headquarters.

The independent, 11-member oversight committee serves as a voter safeguard to monitor OCTA’s use of OC Go funding, approve all changes to the OC Go plan and conduct annual public hearings on the expenditure of funds generated by the sales tax measure.
