After the first year, revenue from this option are subject to statewide redistribution to cities (0.10%), transit districts (0.10%), and counties (0.05%). The 5th quarter is a 0.20% sales tax that can be used to fund transit capital purchase and service delivery. 100% of the revenues generated by this sales tax go directly to the County. There is no redistribution.
