CATS Tax – a picture is worth a thousand words

In our previous article, we analyzed how Baton Rouge voters approved a new property tax to fund the bus system. We would like to be even more specific and let graphical data tell the story: below is the side by side comparison between the 2010 CATS vote (which failed, but the voting “universe” was for East Baton Rouge Parish) and the 2012 CATS vote (the “voting universe” was only for the city limits of Baton Rouge, Baker, and Zachary)
