California Proposition 69, the Transportation Taxes and Fees Lockbox and Appropriations Limit Exemption Amendment, is on the ballot in California as a legislatively referred constitutional amendment on June 5, 2018.
Proposition 69 ensures existing transportation revenues we pay at the pump and when we register our vehicles can ONLY be used for road and transportation improvement projects. Proposition 69 prohibits the Legislature from diverting these revenues for non-transportation purposes. In 2017, California passed Senate Bill 1, which provides more than $5 billion in new revenues to fund transportation improvements all over California. Prop 69 constitutionally protects the portion of these new revenues that aren’t already protected.
Proposition 69 protects existing taxes and fees we are already paying. It does not raise taxes.
Passing Proposition 69 protects revenues dedicated to every city, county and transportation agency in the state for repairing local roads and improving public transportation.
Ensuring transportation revenues are dedicated to transportation projects will support hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs and will boost our economy by improving the transportation network that gets employees to work and goods and services to the market.
Proposition 69 ensures our transportation tax dollars can only be used to make road safety improvements, fill potholes, repair local streets, freeways and bridges, and to invest in public transit.
to repair aging and deteriorating bridges, tunnels and overpasses, as well as highways, freeways and local streets and roads.
by adding new lanes and making repairs to remove bottlenecks that cause congestion.
by building and upgrading crosswalks and sidewalks.
buses and other public transportation services to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality.
Potholes regularly plague streets and roadways. Repair old or weakened asphalt.
