Senate Bill 1 (SB1) Road Repair and Accountability Act
Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, was signed into law on April 28, 2017. This legislative package invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California and puts more dollars toward transit and safety. These funds will be split equally between state and local investments. SB1 provides significant funding for projects that are of high priority to the SCTA, though it does not come with funding to support the SCTA staff or the support work (soft costs) associated with most projects. More information on specific Sonoma County jurisdictions is provided in the following fact sheets:
