STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Senate Bill 1

"Today's billion-dollar commitment by the California legislature will deliver better roads, bridges and transportation infrastructure from one end of the state to the other. Here in Los Angeles, we will be able to repave our roads and give our residents a smoother ride on their daily commute and on their drives to see the people and places they love, with nearly $100 million invested annually into our local streets. None of this would have been possible without the persistence and vision of Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr., Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, Senator Jim Beall, and Assemblymember Jim Frazier. Their years of hard work and determination will serve generations to come."— Mayor Eric Garcetti
