LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has floated a plan to issue $750 million of bonds backed by the city’s share of money from a countywide transportation sales tax to repair a quarter of the city’s streets in two years.

The plan would use up Los Angeles’ share of the a half-cent Los Angles County sales tax approved by voters in 2008 as Measure R. A portion is set aside for street repairs in each of the county’s 88 cities.
