State News: Complete Streets Back On Tap for Legislature

Thursday, January 17, 2019

Last week, State Senator Scott Wiener introduced SB-127, the Complete Streets for All Bill. SB-127 is an updated version of SB-760, the bill we co-sponsored last session and which was held up because of politics surrounding the effort to repeal SB-1 (Prop 6). Now that the repeal of Prop 6 has been defeated, we are optimistic that the conditions will be ripe for the success of the Complete Streets for All bill. The legislation would create an Active Transportation Division within CalTrans and ensure that state highway projects include Complete Streets elements. Sen. Wiener is holding a press conference on the legislation in San Francisco on Monday, January 14. We will report on the press conference in our next newsletter.
