The Wichita sales tax referendum gained support Monday when the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors voted to support it.

Earlier this month, the Wichita City Council passed a 1 percent sales tax referendum that will be presented to voters on Nov. 5.

The sales tax would be for five years and address water, economic development, bus and street needs.
