FAQ Available on the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account and SB 1

September 6, 2017
The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (SB1 Beall) provides for allocations of various funds to state and local agencies for transportation purposes.
 
Among those funds are formula based allocations from the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA). In order to receive RMRA funds, cities and counties must meet a “maintenance of effort” (MOE) requirement to ensure that these new roads funds do not supplant existing levels of general revenue spending on streets and roads. CaliforniaCityFinance.com prepared a FAQ on SB1’s Transportation Funding Maintenance of Effort.

This helpful FAQ answers a variety of questions such as:
  • Can I use my CIP and operational costs to meet my MOE requirement?
  • Why is my MOE number so high?
  • What do I do if I think my number is too high?
