San Jose is considering several possible tax measures to raise money for road work and other needs.

  • Quarter-cent general sales tax (up to $32 million a year) or a half-cent general sales tax (up to $64 million a year); either requires majority approval, proceeds not guaranteed for roads.

  • $295 million bond measure for one-time repairs (approximately $100 a year per household), requires two-thirds approval, proceeds guaranteed for roads.

  • "Amend and extend" 2000 countywide, 30-year half-cent sales tax, originally passed to fund BART and other transit projects, requires two-thirds approval, proceeds must be spent on roads and transit.
