ABOUT SENATE BILL 1 (SB 1)
In April 2017, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, also known as California’s Gas Tax. The newly approved gas tax helps fund important transportation projects throughout the state, like resurfacing local streets, roads, freeways and bridges to provide transit and commute corridor improvements. Funds are generated through increased gas taxes and annual vehicle fees. SB 1 is estimated to generate $5.4 billion annually over the next 10 years for road repairs, maintenance and improvements.
