Where the gas tax really goes: In addition to road maintenance, funds will go to: debt payment, freight projects, public transportation, traffic congestion relief, agriculture programs, state park and boating programs. How the gas tax money is doled out by your county transportation authorities. If you want the details on how your jurisdiction is using their share of gas tax funds meant for road repair, look at your county budget.
The following language is taken from SB1 legislative language: According to the California Senate Appropriations Committee, Senate Bill 1 is expected to generate an estimated $52.4 billion between 2017 and 2027.
SB 1 was designed to:
- Provide for the repayment of $706 million in loans related to transportation.
- Deposit revenue from the gasoline tax, $0.10 of the diesel tax, TIF fees, and ZEV fees into a Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) to fund road maintenance and other projects.
- Deposit revenue from $0.10 of the diesel tax into the Trade Corridor Enhancement Account (TCEA) to fund freight projects.
- Allocate revenue from 3.5 percentage points of the diesel sales tax and $350 million in TIF fees for public transportation projects and expenses.
- Allocate revenue from $250 million in TIF fees for traffic congestion relief projects.
- Allocate revenue related to agriculture equipment that resulted from the gas tax increase to agriculture programs.
- Allocate revenue related to off-highway vehicles and boats that resulted from the gas tax increase to state parks and boating programs
