  • Transportation California Issues Statement in Support of the Governor’s Office Transportation Funding Framework

    September 4, 2015

    Transportation California, a coalition of contractors, allied labor, material providers and business affiliates, issued the following statement today in response to the Governor’s Office transportation funding framework:

    “California is in an urgent roadway maintenance crisis and Transportation California recognizes the strong effort by the Governor to bring a practical solution to the table in the Special Session.

    We support the Governor’s willingness to tackle new revenue by restoring the gas tax to last year’s levels and proposing a per vehicle charge to meet our roadway preservation needs.

    This approach “stops the bleeding” inherent in the existing fuel tax structure resulting from the annual tax adjustment and provides a new vehicle-based revenue source that is immune from the erosion of fuel sales due to improving fuel mileage and alternative fuel vehicle usage.

    We further support the Governor’s proposals that will address better accountability, make more efficient use of the new revenues, improve CEQA processes address needed reforms of Caltrans and extend public private partnerships (P3s).”
