Why Is SB 1 So Historic?

The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, Senate Bill (SB) 1provides the first significant, stable, and on-going increase in state transportation funding in more than two decades. The Legislature has increased revenues and expanded the Commission’s role to provide transparent oversight and accountability for transportation infrastructure investments. SB 1, “presents a balance of new revenues and reasonable reforms to ensure efficiency, accountability, and performance from each dollar invested to improve California’s transportation system.” As an independent public agency, the Commission has been directed to ensure two specific goals: Direct increased revenue to the state’s highest transportation needs; and Fairly distribute the economic impact of increased funding between all users.
