Mayor Lee on State Transportation Funding Package
“I fully endorse the comprehensive transportation funding proposal announced today by Governor Brown and leaders in the California State Legislature.
To reduce traffic congestion and commute times, enhance public transit services, and improve the conditions of our roads, we need to properly fund our state and local transportation systems. When Californians are able to travel efficiently and safely, it benefits our economy, our environment, and the overall quality of life standards of our state.
This bill reflects a landmark commitment to make responsible investments in our infrastructure. These investments will make California’s roads safer, transit systems more reliable, and communities better prepared for tomorrow.
I appreciate the determination of our Governor and legislators in Sacramento to come up with a transportation funding package that proves California is ready to invest in a brighter future. I encourage the California State Legislature to support this package when it comes up for a vote.”
