Senate Bill 1 (Beall), a critically-needed transportation funding bill, was approved on Tuesday on a 8-3 vote by the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee.
AGC efforts played a major factor in gaining the approval vote to move this transportation legislation forward. Close to 800 letters from AGC of California members were submitted to Senators urging the committee to pass SB 1.
The group thanks Senators Beall, Allen, Atkins, McGuire, Mendoza, Skinner, Wieckowski, and Wiener for taking action on the importance of this bill and voted to pass SB 1.
The bill next moves to the Senate Environmental Quality Committee.
