SCPFJ Part of Broad Coalition Opposed to Prop 6


Southern California Partnership for Jobs urges Californians to vote No on Prop 6

“SB1 provides over $5 billion annually in new funding statewide to make road and bridge safety repairs, fix local streets and roads, fill potholes, reduce traffic congestion, and improve mass transit. These projects will reduce commute times and save motorists money by reducing unnecessary wear and tear on vehicles. SB1 will also help boost our local economy by putting people to work and improving the mobility of goods and services,” says John Hakel, Executive Director of SCPFJ.

“Prop 6 would eliminate that funding and rob our communities of vital road and bridge safety and transportation improvement fundsProp 6 eliminates funding for 6,500 transportation improvement projects currently underway. We oppose any efforts to repeal SB 1 and urge Californians to vote No on Prop 6 this November.”
