Press Release: Fix Our Roads Coalition responds to initiative to repeal SB 1, the transportation funding measure.

For Immediate Release: May 4, 2017

Sacramento – The Fix Our Roads coalition issued the following statement in response to the initiative filed today to repeal SB 1, the transportation funding measure passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Brown last month.

“Passing the transportation funding and accountability package was an example of addressing the important issues Californians care deeply about. Californians are tired of driving on potholed, unsafe roads, stuck in traffic. Voters strongly support additional funding to fix our state and local transportation infrastructure. And California voters will have the opportunity to pass a constitutional amendment to ensure these funds are spent only on transportation improvements.

It’s hard to view this Initiative as anything more than the same old obstructionist politics that Californians are tired of.”
