Transportation Funding in California
The Transportation Economics Branch prepares and periodically updates these funding charts to provide an overview of transportation funding in California.
Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 – (also known as SB-1) The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 modifies how California’s transportation system is funded. By way of increasing or indexing the fuel excise tax and a vehicle registration fee adjustment, SB-1 ensures additional transportation revenues are generated to better fund the maintenance and rehabilitation of the state’s and local road’s infrastructure. It also lays out important grounds for accountability, efficiency and performance measures for the California’s infrastructure investment. The following documents highlight the impacts of SB-1 in regards to the increase in gas excise tax, diesel excise and sales tax, Transportation Improvement Fee, Road Improvement Fee and Loan Accelerated Repayments.
