Protecting infrastructure dollars

This past spring, the state legislature passed SB 1, which raises $5.2 billion annually to invest in maintaining and rebuilding our crumbling roads, bridges and highways. There is an effort underway to place an initiative on the ballot in 2018 to repeal provisions of SB 1, which would hurt California’s ability to address tens of billions of dollars in deferred maintenance. Investing in our infrastructure means safer roads for California drivers and tens of thousands of good paying jobs fixing our roads. The Chamber will be working to defend these dollars and highlight specific projects that benefit communities across our region.
