Fix Our Roads Coalition
The League of California Cities® is part of the Fix Our Roads Coalition, a broad coalition of cities, counties, labor, business and transportation advocate that formed to meet Gov. Jerry Brown’s call to address California’s chronic transportation infrastructure funding shortfall. The coalition supports seven core principles:
- Make significant investment in transportation infrastructure;
- Focus on maintaining and rehabilitating the current system;
- Invest a portion of diesel tax and/or Cap-and-Trade revenue to high priority goods movement projects;
- Raise revenues across a broad range of options;
- Equal spilt between state and local projects;
- Strong accountability requirements to protect the taxpayers’ investment; and
- Provide consistent annual funding levels.
