Fix Our Roads Supports Accountable Transportation Funding

AlogoCEC California has joined a broad coalition of cities, counties, labor, business, and transportation advocates to meet the Governor’s call to address California’s chronic transportation infrastructure funding shortfall.

With seven transportation funding priorities…

  1. Make a significant investment in transportation infrastructure
  2. Focus on maintaining and rehabilitating the current system
  3. Invest a portion of diesel tax and/or cap-and-trade revenue to high-priority goods movement projects

  6. Strong accountability requirements to protect the taxpayers’ investment
  7. Provide consistent annual funding levels

…ACEC California looks forward to working with the legislature over the coming weeks as a transportation package is finalized.
