Transportation Special Session Conference Committee to Meet
The Conference Committee formed in the Transportation Special
Session scheduled its first formal hearings this week. CSAC and
the League of Cities will testify in a legislative hearing in
Sacramento on Friday, October 16 at 10 AM. A subsequent hearing
will be held on Wednesday, October 21 from 9am to 12:30pm in the
City of Ontario in San Bernardino County.
As a reminder, the Senate appointed Senators Beall (D-San Jose), Leyva (D-Chino), Allen (D-Santa Monica), Cannella (R-Ceres), and Gaines (R-Roseville) to the conference committee. On the Assembly side, the representatives will be Assembly Members Gomez (D-Northeast Los Angeles), Burke (D-Inglewood), Melendrez (R-Lake Elsinore), Mullin (D-South San Francisco), and Obernolte (R-Big Bear Lake).
CSAC urges counties with representatives on the conference committee to reach to their offices and reiterate the need for a transportation funding package that boosts funding for California’s deteriorating local streets and roads.
