body
BACKGROUND:
Senate Bill 1 (SB1) (Beall, Chapter 5, Statutes of 2017), is known as the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 and was filed with the Secretary of State on April 28, 2017. This bill established a Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) in the State Transportation Fund that is intended to address deferred maintenance on the State highway system and the local street and road systems. The bill also requires the California Transportation Commission (CTC) to adopt criteria to ensure efficient use of these funds. The SB1 funds are provided to cities and counties monthly and the first distribution was made in January 2018.

The County is expected to receive approximately $11,129,265 for FY 2020-21, based on current estimates, which is to be used on the County maintained road system.

Based on the anticipated receipt of the RMRA funds and the SB1 requirements, the County must establish and approve a list of projects. The list of projects must include the specific type of project, approximate project's location, the anticipated start and completion schedule of the work being funded with RMRA funds, and indicate the estimated useful life of the projects. The Road Project List should include any projects that will utilize FY 2020-2021 RMRA funds.

DISCUSSION:
SB1 funds are necessary to help address the funding gap between the declining Road Fund revenues (Highway Users Tax Account [HUTA]) and the increasing road maintenance and repair needs.
