- Reduced traffic on the 805 and the 78

California has already established guidelines for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, tasking several state agencies with engagement and oversight. AB 6 and 7 are redundant measures that inhibit local planning in San Diego County at the expense of working families. The bills would force communities that have long contended with burdensome commutes and ineffective transportation options to accept being locked out of infrastructure developments – the key to upward economic mobility – while wealthier communities in San Diego County have seen state-of-the-art infrastructure investments both prioritized and realized in their neighborhoods.
Importantly, the efforts propelling AB 6 and 7 would inhibit forward momentum on key projects.
If AB 6 & 7 pass, they would prohibit and could delay the use of state and local funding for road improvement projects to relieve congestion and improve safety, such as widening or new lanes approved by local voters.
