Senate Bill 1

Invests $52.4 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California.

The state hasn’t added any new funding to fix California roads in over 20 years. On average our crumbling roads cost CA driver’s $762 a year because we are tens of billions of dollars behind in road construction. The longer we wait, the more expensive it will get.

The Road Repair & Accountability Act will charge drivers a minimal fee – on average $10 a month – and in return every driver will save hundreds of dollars on wear and tear of their vehicles.

Strict accountability is included to ensure funds are only spent on transportation. And, the investment in our infrastructure will create tens of thousands of new construction jobs every year.

Senate Bill 1 will save drivers money, create thousands of jobs and boost our economy.
