AB 2237 (Friedman) This bill would have brought transportation funding at the local level into alignment with the need to reduce the emissions that cause air pollution and climate change. If enacted as written, it would have meant more money for transit, bicycle and pedestrian-friendly infrastructure, and no more dollars for road expansions that increase vehicle miles traveled and the associated emissions. Because of that, it’s opposed by local governments and developers. STATUS: APPROVED May 25 in the Assembly; ordered to the Senate. Referred to the Senate Transportation Committee 6/16. Never made it out of that committee.
