CALL FOR ACTION!
Rally at the State Capitol
I strongly encourage you to attend the Fix Our Roads Coalition Rally at the State Capitol on Thurs., May 19th at 9:30am – and to engage as many fellow supporters from your organization as possible to attend with you!
This is a Call For Action of the Transportation California membership to rally with our coalition partners in support of a transportation funding package. Now is the time – we need your support! (It’s suggested the construction industry wear hard hats and vests — flyer link below!)
This is it, folks. We have before us an excellent opportunity for our industry to show our collective support and urge legislators to pass a transportation funding package. As you all know, the problem we face is serious. Not only have we failed to adequately invest in maintaining our transportation system, the California Transportation Commission will be forced to eliminate three quarters of a billion dollars in project work already programmed for the upcoming 2016 State Transportation Improvement Program because of declining revenues . Further, cities and counties have faced a similar reduction in revenues over the past few years and are eliminating important maintenance projects around the state. To meet the needs of a growing economy and an expanding population, to maintain jobs that come with investment in infrastructure, and to take care of an aging system, California needs a transportation revenue and reform package now.
I hope to see you all at the Capitol on May 19th!
