April 28, 2017

CAMPBELL – Senator Jim Beall, author of Senate Bill 1 and chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, issues this statement on the signing of SB 1 today by Governor Brown:

“This has been a long road and today we’ve reached the destination: the first major investment in California’s transportation infrastructure since 1994. Over the last two-and-half years, I’ve held hearings on this bill from Riverside to Sacramento. I’ve met and listened to scores of legislators and hundreds of stakeholders to get their ideas and fashion them into a workable bill.

“The result is a landmark legislation that serves to maintain and preserve California’s road and highway system for generations to come. I’m very glad to have played a role in this achievement.’’
