Gov. Brown Makes $52 Billion Push For Transportation Funding

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Gov. Jerry Brown will make his final transportation funding bill push at the State Capitol on Wednesday.

Tuesday, Gov. Brown was in Riverside to drum up support for the $52 billion plan to fix California’s roads.

Alongside union workers and Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, the governor reiterated his stance that now is the time for the bill – saying it will not get cheaper.

De Leon says the bill will contain a lockbox to make sure money from the tax can only be spent on road repairs.

The bill requires a two-thirds vote to pass the legislature.
