PHOENIX - Gov. Janet Napolitano says she believes Arizona voters will get to decide in November whether to raise the state sales tax by a penny to pay for a $42 billion transportation plan.

She says that while a sample of the signatures collected to put the measure on the ballot showed fewer signatures than supporters needed, a larger review will hit the mark.

The Secretary of State's office had said supporters fell nearly 15,000 signatures short of the almost 154,000 needed to put the issue before voters in November.

Supporters say the proposal would raise money for projects to reduce traffic and pollution, and fund highway construction and other transportation projects.

Supporters failed to get the Legislature to put a transportation proposal on the ballot.
