Assemblymember Frazier Comments on Transportation Plan in Governor’s Budget Proposal

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Sacramento, CA Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D – Oakley) released the following statement after Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. released his 2017-18 budget proposal:

“I commend Governor Brown for presenting another balanced budget. The Governor continues to highlight the critical need to find a long-term, comprehensive funding solution for California’s transportation system.

“California’s road condition is rapidly deteriorating with an estimated funding shortfall of $59 billion for state highways and $73 billion for local roads. If we fail to make a significant investment in our local roads, it is expected that nearly one-fourth will be in ‘failed’ condition by 2026.

“I am optimistic about working with the Governor and my colleagues this year to build consensus for a plan to keep California moving in the right direction.”

Assemblymember Frazier represents the 11th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Antioch, Bethel Island, Birds Landing, Brentwood, Byron, Collinsville, Discovery Bay, Fairfield, Isleton, Knightsen, Locke, Oakley, Pittsburg (partial), Rio Vista, Suisun City, Travis AFB, Vacaville and Walnut Grove.
