Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund: transportation expenditures.

Abstract

Existing law requires all moneys, except for fines and penalties, collected by the State Air Resources Board from the auction or sale of allowances as part of a market-based compliance mechanism relative to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to be deposited in the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. Existing law continuously appropriates 25% of the annual proceeds of the fund to the high-speed rail project, and also continuously appropriates to that project $400,000,000 of the amount loaned from the fund to the General Fund by the Budget Act of 2013, upon repayment of the loan by the General Fund. Existing law further appropriates 35% of the annual proceeds of the fund to transit and intercity rail capital, low-carbon transit operations, and affordable housing and sustainable communities. This bill would delete the continuous appropriations from the fund for the high-speed rail project, and would prohibit any of the proceeds from the fund from being used for that project. The bill would continuously appropriate the remaining 65% of annual proceeds of the fund to the California Transportation Commission for allocation to high-priority transportation projects, as determined by the commission, with 40% of those moneys to be allocated to state highway projects, 40% to local street and road projects divided equally between cities and counties, and 20% to public transit projects. This bill would require $400,000,000 of the amount loaned from the fund to the General Fund by the Budget Act of 2013 to be immediately repaid to the fund, thereby making an appropriation.
