How would a local funding measure work?

If approved by San Rafael voters, the measure would increase the local sales tax by one-quarter percent, generating about $3.4 million annually, with 100% of this revenue staying in San Rafael. This sales tax would be paid for not just by San Rafael residents, but also those who work, visit and shop in San Rafael. Purchases such as groceries, prescription medicine and other essential purchases are exempt from sales tax.
