Issue

Amended and no longer relevant to IANA. Original bill: The Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act of 2006 (Proposition 1B) created the Trade Corridors Improvement Fund and provided for allocation by the CaliforniaTransportation Commission of $2 billion in bond funds for infrastructure improvements on highway and rail corridors that have a high volume of freight movement and for specified categories of projects eligible to receive these funds. Existing law continues the Trade Corridors Improvement Fund in existence in order to receive revenues from sources other than the bond act for these purposes. Existing law requires the California Transportation Commission, in determining trade corridor improvements eligible for funding with these revenues, to consult various plans, including the State Air Resources Board’s Sustainable Freight Strategy. This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation ensuring and promoting the competitiveness of California’s statewide and local freight transportation systems, including job growth, in a manner consistent with the goals of the Sustainable Freight Strategy.
