How TC is working for SCCA members

  • TC develops an understanding of the collective interests of transportation construction businesses and workers and molds them into clear public policy positions for California lawmakers to understand.

  • SCCA members, key staff, and lobbyists participate in TC board meetings and other organizational functions. We are proud to play a role in its advocacy, decision-making, and support.


Big wins for TC

  • All the major transportation funding proposals in California have Transportation California’s fingerprints on them.

  • In March 2002, TC was the driving force behind Proposition 42 which dedicated the sales tax on gasoline to transportation projects. California assessed the sales tax on a gallon of fuel and any state and federal excise taxes as well; the state was applying a sales tax on a tax. That sales tax revenue would go to general government operations and not transportation-related programs. TC proposed to put an end to that backward thinking and sponsored a statewide initiative. In 2002, 69.1% of the voters agreed. Proposition 42 resulted in about $1.5 billion additional dollars annually for transportation dedicated infrastructure projects.

  • TC was instrumental in the passage of Proposition 1B, which created a $20 billion general obligation bond for transportation projects. It also threw its weight behind SB1 and against its repeal during the Proposition 6 campaign.

  • Transportation California has ensured tens of billions of dollars in transportation projects across the state.
