The Kern County Board of Supervisors has approved a 1-percent sales tax proposed by Sheriff Donny Youngblood to be placed on the November ballot.
Supervisors voted 4-1 to move forward with the ballot measure. Supervisor David Couch voted against the proposal.
Youngblood brought the proposal to supervisors earlier this month, but supervisors voted to push it back to allow County Counsel to look further into it.
Under the proposal, voters will decide in November whether to adopt the tax.
According to the proposal, if passed by voters, it would generate $35 million for the county.
