Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act, was signed into law on April 28, 2017. This legislative package invests $5.4 billion annually to fix roads, freeways, and bridges in communities across California and puts more dollars toward transit and safety. These funds will be split equally between state and local investments.
In June of 2018, Voters decided via ballot measure to adopt Assembly Constitutional Amendment (ACA) 5, adopted by the Legislature to specifically state that Senate Bill 1 funds will be designated for transportation use only. ACA 5 ensures that future revenues passed by the Legislature to pay for road and highway maintenance are spent exclusively on much-needed repairs to California’s infrastructure and not on other legislative priorities.
Senate Bill 1 would fund projects all throughout the 56th Assembly District. You can see what those specific projects are by clicking on this link rebuildingca.ca.gov/map/ and selecting “Filter By:” Assembly District and 56 in the prompts.
