California – Measure G, Sales Tax To Boost Firefighting Efforts, Appears Headed For Defeat

A permanent half-cent sales tax increase to bolster the budgets of dozens of large and small local firefighting agencies in Sonoma County appeared to be headed for a defeat with every precinct counted Wednesday morning.

Measure G had received the support of 62% of voters, or 62,564 yes votes out of 101,278 votes reported at all 526 precincts, according to county election data.

The measure, which would generate an estimated $51 million annually for about three dozen separate fire agencies, needs two-thirds support to pass.
