Monrovia Assemblyman And Others Propose 'Transportation Equity' Laws

Assemblymember Chris Holden (who represents Monrovia), and members Eduardo Garcia and Richard Bloom have unveiled a package of "transportation equity" proposals that would: provide $50 million for student transit passes (Holden, AB 2222); "put disadvantaged communities first when Caltrans determines which roads to maintain and improve, and prioritizes projects for funding that hire and/or train individuals with barriers to employment" (Garcia, AB 2332); increase spending on bike and pedestrian safety in disadvantaged communities (Bloom, AB 2796 and AB 1982).

  1. So "transportation equity" street repair is determined by race and income instead of road conditions?

    It would seem more equitable if repairs were prioritized based on how badly the road's condition was, and nothing else. That is Caltrans' job, isn't it, maintaining roads?

    Now Caltrans is even more politicized than it has been.

    Sounds legit. For Sacto. And Holden.
