2 Statewide Transportation System Needs Assessment 2011 “California’s transportation system is in jeopardy. Underfunding – decade after decade - has led to the decay of one of the State’s greatest assets.” - California Transportation Commission California Transportation Commission

3 Neglected Improvements are Staggering California’s unfunded needs are - California Transportation Commission - California Transportation Commission Statewide Transportation Needs Assessment

6 Infrastructure Report Card 6 - Texas Transportation Institute CALIFORNIA  6 of the Nation’s 10 Worst Urban Area Pavement Conditions  14 of the Nation’s 20 Most Congested Transportation Corridors  66% of California’s Major Urban Highways are Congested

21 Fuel User Fees Too Low 21 F UEL U SER F EE  California - 55 ¢ Per Gallon - Building America’s Future  Fees Cover Only 50% of Road Maintenance & Operations - Building America’s Future Transportation Infrastructure Report 2011 Transportation Infrastructure Report 2011  Canada & Europe – $4.43 Per Gallon (Average) Fuel User Fees are Green!

22 Each 1 ¢ Fuel User Fee  Costs the Average Driver $5.54 Per Year  Raises $200MM Annually 22 F UEL U SER F EE

23 Recommendation  Transportation California recommends  Transportation California recommends:  A Regular Annual Fuel User Fee Increase of 8¢ Per Gallon  8¢ per Gallon Raises approx. $1.6B Annually 23 F UEL U SER F EE
