ELECTION RESULTS FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY

As has often been the case in recent years, voters in the November 1999 elections sent mixed signals concerning rail transit. Colorado voters overwhelmingly endorsed a much-debated Southeast Corridor light rail extension in Denver. On the other hand, five other light rail projects went down to defeat: Hampton Roads, Virginia; Columbus, Ohio; Aspen, Colorado; Kansas City, Missouri; and Orlando, Florida. In a major tax revolt, Washington State voters approved an initiative to repeal the state's motor vehicle excise tax. This brief also highlights a federal court decision blocking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency from imposing tougher air pollution controls on ozone and particulates; accommodating older drivers; the sale of SR91 Express Lanes facility in Orange County, California; and "pay as you go" auto insurance.
