Proposition 6 (SB 1 Repeal) Fact Sheet

Post Date:09/28/2018 1:54 PM

 What is Proposition 6?

On November 2018, Proposition 6 will be placed on the ballot intended to repeal Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.  If it passes, Proposition 6 will eliminate funding in existing transportation funds and stop funding dedicated to improve highways, roads, bridges, trails, and pedestrian safety.  Gas and vehicles fees will decrease, however projects funded through SB 1 throughout San Mateo County will be delayed indefinitely or cancelled. 

What is Senate Bill 1 (SB 1)?

SB 1 is a landmark transportation funding package that generates new revenues from a combination of gas taxes and vehicle registration fees designed to repair and maintain California’s state highways, local roads and support public transit and active transportation. 

If Prop 6 passes, the City of Millbrae will face a $400,000 loss in funding.  Maintenance of local residential roads will be negatively impacted and projects focused on improving local streets will be postponed until further funding is available.
