The future of the Capital Area Transit system, or "CATS," will be determined in a special tax election on Saturday. As WRKF's Tegan Wendland reports, the system is facing a $2.1 million deficit in a budget currently projected at $12.6 million.

Proponents say the buses could shut down in July.</span> Fri, 20 Apr 2012 05:00:00 +0000 Tegan Wendland 2607 at http://wrkf.org Voters Consider CATS Transit Tax
