Coalition Supporting Passage of Proposition 69 and Opposing Any Effort to Repeal Transportation Funding Continues to Grow

February 7, 2018
As cities and counties throughout California begin hundreds of street and road improvement projects funded through SB 1, the broad coalition supporting safer roads and protecting local transportation improvements gains momentum. 
 
Cities are using these dollars to fill pot holes resurface streets, fix bridges, improve sidewalks, expand bike lanes and more and it is critical that these transportation funds remain protected.
 
Voters have an opportunity in June to prevent the Legislature from diverting transportation funds with Proposition 69. Supported by the League and the Coalition to Protect Local Transportation, the measure adds constitutional protections to new revenues generated by SB 1 and ensures that these funds can be used only for transportation improvement purposes.
 
The groups supporting Prop. 69 and opposing any ballot measure to repeal SB 1 comprises a broad Coalition that understand the value of these funds for California’s residents, businesses, cities and counties. Coalition members come from business, labor, local government, transportation advocates and taxpayers.
 
To date, the Coalition to Protect Local Transportation Improvements includes:
  • Alameda Corridor – East Construction Authority (ACE)
  • American Council of Engineering Companies – California
