League of California Cities® Issues Statement on the Failure of Proposition 6


The League of California Cities® released the following statement from Executive Director Carolyn Coleman with voters’ rejection of Proposition 6. 
 
“By voting no on Proposition 6, the citizens of California have ensured that our communities have the funding they need to continue critical transportation improvements in cities throughout California for our families and future generations. California voters sent a message that they value a safe transportation network — the same network of roads that Californians use every day to drive to work and take their kids to school.
 
The protection of existing transportation funding means that our cities can continue to make smart investments in local transportation improvement projects. Californians are already seeing the difference these funds are making in their communities, and they can expect stabilized roads, structurally sound bridges and a safer transportation network as a whole.”

Established in 1898, the League of California Cities is a nonprofit statewide association that advocates for cities with the state and federal governments and provides education and training services to elected and appointed city officials.
