Capital Improvement Projects Funded by Senate Bill 1 (SB1, 2017)

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. SB1 is estimated to generate $5.4 billion annually over the next ten years for road repairs, maintenance and improvements.

GAS TAX AT WORK IN THE CITY OF SAN PABLO 

The new gas tax doubles what City of San Pablo was originally receiving prior to the passage of SB 1, allowing the City to complete existing and new projects sooner, as well as adding new funding sources to large projects. SB 1 will generate an estimated $7.5 million for the City of San Pablo over the next 9 years.
