Prop 6 would eliminate

funding for more than 6,500 local bridge and road safety and transportation improvement projects.

The California Professional Firefighters, California Association of Highway Patrolmen, American Society of Civil Engineers, business, local government, labor, environmentalists and first responders urge NO on Prop 6 because it eliminates more than $5 billion annually in existing transportation funds and stops funding for more than 6,500 bridge and road safety, transportation and public transit improvement projects currently underway throughout California.

Prop 6 makes our bridges and roads less safe and jeopardizes public safety

  • California has more than 1,600 bridges and overpasses that are structurally deficient and unsafe and 89% of counties have roads that are in ‘poor’ or ‘at-risk’ condition.
  • According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were more than 3,600 fatalities on California roads in 2016. Poor road conditions are a major factor in vehicle collisions and accidents.
  • Prop 6 will stop thousands of projects currently underway throughout California to upgrade bridges and overpasses to meet earthquake safety standards and to improve the safety of our roads.

Prop 6 eliminates funding for more than 6,500 transportation improvement projects currently underway

  • According to the California State Transportation Agency, there are more than 6,500 local transportation improvement projects underway in every California community.
  • If Prop 6 passes, construction will come to a grinding halt in every city and county in the state, wasting money and making road conditions even worse.

Prop 6 eliminates thousands of jobs and hurts our economy

The California Chamber of Commerce and business organizations throughout the state oppose Prop 6 because it would eliminate 68,000 jobs and $183 billion dollars in economic investments as thousands of road construction projects are halted.

Voters spoke loud and clear to dedicate road funding

Voters overwhelmingly passed Prop 69 in June preventing Sacramento politicians from raiding transportation funds and ensuring these funds are only used for transportation improvements. We should not eliminate transportation revenues that are accountable to taxpayers, can’t be diverted, and that voters overwhelmingly dedicated to fixing our roads.
