A bill by state Sen. Wadie P. Deddeh (D-Chula Vista) authorizing a sales tax election to fund San Diego transportation passed the Senate by a 30-4 vote Tuesday. The bill also would create a regional transportation commission.

Under the bill, the San Diego Assn. of Governments could ask for a sales tax increase of between one-quarter of 1% and 1% to help make up a projected transportation funding shortage of $3.2 billion over the next 20 years.
