You Did It! CA Transportation Funding Saved!

55% of California voters said “NO!” to Prop 6 and kept our SB 1 gas tax alive, which will continue to fund millions of dollars in transportation improvements to roads, bridges, rail & transit services and pedestrian and bicyclist safety.  Because of this, our local and regional transportation projects will remain funded and on track!

Thank you for voting “NO!” on Prop 6!

A Walk/Bike-Only State Street: Now is the Time!
