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:

- Why is my MOE number so high?
- What do I do if I think my number is too high?
