League of California Cities Applauds Investment in California’s State and Local Transportation SystemThe Senate and Assembly on Thursday night passed SB 1 (Beall), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. The $5.2 billion that will now be generated annually for California’s state and local transportation system will ensure that Californians have safe and reliable streets, roads and bridges and a solid transportation network. Both houses also passed ACA 5, which upon voter approval will ensure that revenues generated in SB 1 are spent only on their intended purpose.
