Transportation Funding

Feuer Seeks To Help LA County Help Itself

4:55 PM PST on January 12, 2008

A seemingly wonky piece of legislation introduced last week by Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-LA) may have big implications for the future of transportation funding in Southern California. ACA 10, modeled after a ballot proposition for education bonds, would lower the threshold needed for counties to approve bond measures for transportation. Currently, 2/3 of all voters need to approve. Feuer's legislation lowers the threshold to 55%.

Of course, before proposal becomes law, it needs to be approved by 2/3 of each house of the legislature, and 2/3 of the voters this November.
Feuer is also working on legislation that would allow areas to become Infrastructure Financing Districts (IFD’s) without being blighted and legislation that would allow LA to pass its own carbon tax. IFD's allow communities to create local fees that are dedicated towards certain transportation projects.
