STATE LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Impacts Of The State Budget Deficit On Transportation

The State Legislature is being asked to reduce funding for transportation projects and programs for the next 18 months by over $1.8 billion statewide and $500 million in Los Angeles County alone. This represents more than one quarter of all the State’s programmed transportation infrastructure spending. In addition, the State Highway Account has been projected to experience significant shortfalls. These two factors have created a crisis in funding for transportation statewide.

The MTA has prepared the attached briefing book to provide legislators with a summary of projects in Los Angeles County that could be affected by these reductions. While no specific project has been targeted for elimination, projects in the Traffic Congestion Relief Plan (TCRP) and the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) will experience a funding shortage. We hope that in formation helps convey the magnitude of transportation infrastructure investment at risk in Los Angeles County.

For example, funding for projects such as the Eastside Light Rail Line, San Fernando Valley East/West Busway, Mid-City/Westside Exposition Transit Corridor improvements and a myriad of freeway improvement projects could be eliminated or seriously delayed. Also facing reductions are funding for street and road repair and basic bus service.

All of these reductions or delays will also delay the economic benefits that accompany transportation spending.

In March 2002 the voters of the State overwhelmingly approved Proposition 42, permanently allocating the sales tax on gasoline to these types of projects. As the Legislature considers the Governor’s request to suspend Proposition 42, in order to implement these reductions, it is important to clearly identify what is at stake.

MOBILITY-21 Coalition

2003 State Budget Impacts on TransportationResolution

Supports efforts to balance the state budget with minimal effects on transportation resources and supports efforts to provide increased revenue to transportation.

Supports a resolution on the State Budget deficit that embodies the following principles:

  • Long term and immediate preservation of Proposition 42 funds including repayment of loans and suspensions.

  • Preservation of funds for Los Angeles County transportation projects.

  • Establishment of priority for projects in the Traffic Congestion Relief Program.


Mobility 21 coalition15

MOBILITY-21 Coalition

2003 State Budget Impacts on TransportationResolution

4. Support for additional statewide revenues that would offset any reductions made through a suspension of Proposition 42. The revenue options include:

     a. A temporary or permanent increase in the state gas tax.

b. Authorization for specified local transportation agencies to impose user fees for transportation.

5. Support reduction of the voter threshold for passage of local transportation sales taxes.

6. Support legislation or administrative actions which enhance the state’s ability to support the TCRP projects; provides funding priority to projects which are in the more advanced stages of project development, and limits funding to non-essential projects and advance project development efforts.

THAT this resolution shall be widely circulated to all interested parties to include the Los Angeles County Congressional delegation, the Governor, members of the California legislature, California Transportation Commission, the cities within the County, the media and others, and is so accordingly Ordered.
