Here what you need to know about this recently passed Amendment to the California Constitution.
- SB 1 was originally passed in April of 2017 to help generate revenue annually ($5 Billion) which would fund transportation improvements through an increased tax on diesel fuel
- The funds could only be used for public streets, highways, and public transportation systems
- The ACA – 5 (effective January 2018) amended the Constitution to add an additional form of revenue for the Transportation Fund through automobile registrations
- Revenue from both funding sources have been protected by the new amendment so that they cannot be reallocated or applied elsewhere
