KANSAS CITY — The Kansas City Star reports the City Council’s Ethics and Legal Review Committee gave preliminary approval to two different citizens’ streetcar petition initiatives, which are now both headed to the August ballot.

One of the petitions seeks two sales taxes totaling three-eighths of a cent for 25 years to pay for streetcar expansion, while the other would prohibit Kansas City from doing any planning or implementing of any fixed-rail expansion without a citywide vote.

The measures go to the full council later this month for approval. For the full story, click here.
