What is the Board of Directors’ Authority?

The Board of Directors provides legislative direction for STA and its administrators and approves its policies, budgets and long-term plans. The Board has the authority to levy sales taxes with voter approval up to 0.9%. In 2016, after more than 35 years at the effective rate of 0.6%, voters approved a phased-in 0.2% increase to bring STA’s funding rate to 0.8% by 2019.
