SACRAMENTO—Assemblymember Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley), issued the statement below following passage of Senate Bill 1 (Beall), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. The legislation invests $52.4 billion over the next decade to fix local streets and highways and improve public transportation. Assemblymember Low is a co-author of SB 1.
“This is a historic moment for California as we make critical investments in our future,” said Assemblymember Evan Low. “The more we delay fixing our roads, the more costly the repairs will become. SB 1 is a smart plan that will fix our highways and roads, improve public transit, and boost our economy.”
