Sacramento, CA – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D – Oakley), Chair of the Assembly Transportation and Infrastructure Development Committee in the Governor's Special Session, conducted the first special hearing to examine the efficiency of California’s goods movement and its impact on the economy.
“California's freight mobility system is the heart and soul of our economy,” said Frazier. “Our access points to land, air and sea ports are vital international commercial gateways that are responsible for the more than $500 billion in products entering and exiting the United States each year. Governor Brown’s executive order highlights the critical need to increase efficiency in goods movement so that we can remain relevant and competitive. This hearing provides a forum for the Legislature, industries and stakeholders to come together and address key issues surrounding goods movement activities and their effect on infrastructure, communities, jobs and the economy.”
