Eliminating Barriers to Common-Sense Transportation Projects

Lunchtime Forum

Senate Bill 288, championed by Senator Wiener and signed into law in 2020, provides targeted California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) exemptions to accelerate common-sense, sustainable transit and active transportation projects that make limited public dollars go further, fight climate change, and result in a safer, healthier and more equitable future for all Californians. Projects expedited by this process are already hitting the streets, but unless an extension is approved, the law will expire at the end of 2022. Come explore SB 288's impact across California so far and learn about SB 922 (Wiener), which would extend and fine-tune the law.
