The Complete Streets for Active Living Bill (SB 127) faces its toughest test in the Assembly Transportation Committee on July 8. Even after months of negotiations with stakeholders to get the bill approved by the Senate, the members of the Assembly Transportation Committee could kill or severely weaken the bill. Every provision that elevates the importance of biking and walking safety is at risk.
That’s why we need you to tell your state assembly member vote YES on SB 127, the Complete Streets for Active Living Bill, today.
Critical provisions of this bill that could be stripped by the Transportation Committee include:
- Requiring safety improvements with every repaving project on most state-owned roads (with reasonable exceptions)
- Elevating safety considerations in setting the priority of repaving and rehabilitation projects
- Involving community organizations and local governments when a project is planned
We need eight votes in the Assembly Transportation Committee when they consider the bill on July 8.
