Take Action to Bring Our Community’s Needs To State Decisions

The California Transportation Commission allocates the majority of transportation funds in the state, so it’s imperative that appointees have our families’ best interests at heart.

A newly proposed state bill, AB 179, would require at least one CTC commissioner to represent environmental justice communities. The CTC allocates the majority of transportation funds in the state, so it’s crucial that appointees have relevant knowledge and are able to represent communities disproportionately burdened by air pollution from transportation.

AB 179 makes sure that our leaders fully understand the effects of toxic pollution before they’re allowed to make decisions about it.

Before you get behind the wheel of a car, you have to prove you know how to drive it properly. AB 179 says governing should be no different.

Got three minutes? You can help ensure our government better represents our communities.
