Summary:

Legislation to provide LA County MTA with the authority to enact a transit benefit ordinance

Status: Signed by Governor (8/20)

CoaST Position: Support

Action Center

AB 2425/S1567 would authorize a statewide transit benefit ordinance in New Jersey similar to that of San Francisco, Washington DC, and New York City. If enacted, employers with more than 50 employees would be required to offer pre-tax transportation fringe benefits to their employees. Transit benefit programs greatly reduce drive alone rates, thus, reducing congestion, improving air quality and improving quality of life for all users of the transportation system.

Status: Pending Floor Action in Senate & Assembly

CoaST Position: Support

Testimony of CoaST member – Commuter Benefit Services

The Coalition for Smarter Transportation fully supports efforts in California to reject Prop 6. California recently increased their gas tax in an effort to raise funding for critical infrastructure and mass transit projects. An effort to eliminate that increase, known as Prop 6, will be on the ballot this November and its defeat is critical not only for California but for the entire nation. The proposition provides no dedicated replacement for transportation funding that would be lost and its passage would send shockwaves through California as many agencies have already planned for and allocated funding to be used.

A number of CoaST members have started a local campaign that will be used to educate the public on how the passage of Prop 6 will impact their daily lives. To learn more about prop 6 and how you can help visit:
