  • Funding Advocacy & Legislative Programs

    The San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) develops its advocacy priorities in concert with its 24 cities in San Bernardino County and the five County Board of Supervisors to improve the transportation network system on behalf of the approximately two million residents in the region.

    The adopted legislative programs support and assist our organization with delivering freeway construction projects, regional and local road improvements, transit and rail improvements, grade separations, call boxes and ridesharing programs, congestion relief, as well as long-term planning efforts.

    Legislative Programs

    The full transcript of each program is available in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format:

    As the entity charged with administering the Measure I sales tax program, a priority for the SBCTA legislative program is to promote policies and funding programs that allow the efficient implementation of our program and considers leveraging additional opportunities for Measure I projects.

    Based on the principles of fiscal stability, preservation of local control, and efficient service delivery and operations, the SBCTA Board of Directors provides specific direction and overall policy guidance to the Director of Legislative Affairs by adopting an annual platform before each legislative session and, when applicable, identifying priority transportation projects for specific funding categories. Effective partnerships between regional, state, and federal agencies are pivotal to ensure that our region is effectively represented in Washington DC and Sacramento.
