What will happen if this passes?

If a majority of the voters vote yes and this initiative passes, then the State Department of Revenue will begin collecting the equivalent sales tax on online, out-of-state purchases and remitting that to the City. Based on our estimates from the state's own use tax, that would mean we could increase the street preservation and rehabilitation budget by roughly $1 million.
