The legislative package invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California and puts more money toward transit and safety.

Last year, the California Legislature approved the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 — AKA — SB 1, legislation that modifies how the state's transportation system is funded.

The legislative package invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California and puts more money toward transit and safety. The funds will be split equally between state and local investments.

The League of California Cities said this about the bill, “For cities, SB 1 will double the amount of revenues they each receive from the state for their local street maintenance and rehabilitation needs. Annually, $500 to $650 million will go to cities statewide, allocated on a per capita basis. A vast majority of the new revenues for cities will come out of the newly-created Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) where cities will have to prioritize fixing their existing infrastructure first before having some additional flexibility for those funds for other transportation needs.”

The estimated revenue generated from of SB 1 and effective dates are:

  • $1.8 billion — 12-cent increase to gasoline excise tax (Nov. 1, 2017)
  • $730 million — 20-cent increase to diesel excise tax (Nov. 1, 2017)
  • $300 million — 4 percent addition to diesel sales tax (Nov. 1, 2017)
  • $704 million — One-time loan repayment (2017-2020)
  • $1.6 billion — $25-$175 transportation improvement fee (Jan 1, 2018)
  • $1.1 billion — 17.3-cent reset of price-based gas tax (July 1, 2019)
  • $20 million — $100 zero emission vehicle registration fee (July 1, 2020)
