In 2017, lawmakers approved a major transportation funding package that will provide $5 billion a year in much needed funds for roads, highways, public transit, and bike and pedestrian improvements. Proposition 6, which will appear on the November 6, 2018 statewide ballot, would eliminate this recently enacted funding for California’s transportation infrastructure.
The Budget Center has produced a short video that highlights some of the basic facts about Prop. 6. Executive Director Chris Hoene, drawing from our Issue Brief on Prop. 6, provides an overview of Prop. 6 and discusses what the measure would mean for California’s ability to fund essential transportation projects.
