Either Monday or Tuesday, San Diego’s City Council likely will decide if it will put a half-cent sales tax increase before voters in November.
It takes six council members to move a sales tax ballot measure forward, and it’s unclear if the votes are there.
Council members Kevin Faulconer and Carl DeMaio, the council’s two Republicans, are against it. They made their position known even before there was a formal proposal.
With Faulconer and DeMaio opposed, the council’s six Democrats all have to vote in favor.
