Taxes for Transportation

Lunchtime Forum

Senate Bill 1 (SB1) was passed last year to increase funding from the state’s gas tax and offset a decline in revenue due to increased vehicle efficiency. However, its modest gains may be repealed this November when voters are faced with Prop. 6, a measure that would both repeal SB1 and make it harder to increase transportation funding across the state. Learn about what SB1 does for our region, the impacts that Prop. 6 would have and the overall transportation funding landscape across the state.
