Californians deserve transparent and accountable government. 加州交通运输 helps ensure that the public knows how their tax dollars are being spent through education and outreach efforts. We have developed a suite of informative documents about California’s multimodal transportation network, including facts and statistics about the statewide transportation network and how transportation infrastructure is funded, including reporting on annual SB 1 (the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017) projects and expenditures.

保护运输资金

在经济低迷和衰退期间, past State Legislatures and Governors raided transportation infrastructure funding for other purposes. After years of transportation funding being diverted for non-transportation purposes, California’s voters passed a series of ballot initiatives that put a lockbox around transportation tax dollars. 加州交通运输 helped develop and pass these measures and continually works to ensure constitutionally protected funding for transportation infrastructure projects is 专用的 and used for its intended purposes.

联邦运输基金

Transportation is vital to California’s economy. The State has done its part to generate robust, 专用的, sustainable transportation funding with the passage of SB 1 in 2017 which generates approximately $5.每年要维持40亿美元, 改善, 让加州的街道更安全, 道路, 和桥梁, 缓解交通拥堵, 增加货物, 提供更多的交通工具, 自行车和步行选择. 此外, there are 25 “self-help counties’ with super majority-approved local sales tax measures that also generates billions annually for multimodal transportation purposes. 但, to successfully build a world-class transportation system, California requires a strong federal partnership. We advocate for robust federal surface transportation programs to keep California moving and thriving. Here are some additional resources related to federal transportation funding matters pending in our Nation’s Capital.

交通运输与气候变化

California is a leader in the global fight against climate change. The State has committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. To achieve these ambitious but achievable goals, all sectors of the economy must play a part. The transportation sector’s role is three-fold: vehicles, 燃料,和chieving transportation system efficiencies through sustainable land use and affordable housing policies. The State’s overarching plan to achieving GHG emissions reductions across all sectors is outlined in the ab32范围计划 that the California Air Resources Board (CARB) updates every five years.

SB 375 – landmark legislation passed in 2008 that sets forth how California will reduce GHG emissions from the transportation sector – requires each of California’s 18 regional Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) a Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) in their long-range regional transportation plans. The SCSs identify strategies to reduce GHG emissions from driving and provide a range of other benefits including public health, 环境, 社会正义, 以及获得机会的途径, 如果实现的话. CARB also has helpful resources for more about SB 375实施.

尽管有这些持续的努力, California still needs to actively mitigate against and adapt for the effects of climate change that are already playing out across the state as increasing temperatures, 海平面上升和风暴潮, 更大的森林火灾, 还有更猛烈的暴风雨. These impacts pose a dangerous risk to our built and natural environment, including our statewide multimodal transportation infrastructure.

SB 743的实施 

加州交通运输 is monitoring implementation of another ambitious measure in the transportation-climate change policy interface – SB 743 which was adopted by the California State Legislature in 2013 and took effect July 1, 2020. SB 743 states that traffic congestion shall not be considered a significant impact on 环境 and required the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) to develop proposed revisions to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines establishing criteria for determining the significance of transportation impacts of projects within transit priority areas. SB 743也批准了, 但没有要求, OPR to develop alternative metrics to level of service for transportation impacts outside of transit priority areas. 2018年12月, the California Natural Resources Agency has finalized the SB 743 rulemaking and certified and adopted the CEQA指南
