Several state legislative and budget actions have kept the Safe Routes to School National Partnership and statewide partners in California very busy this spring:
- The proposed Active Transportation Program in the state budget might result in consolidation of Safe Routes to School into a larger program.
- Assembly bill 1194 protects Safe Routes to School from consolidation and creates one streamlined state program out of previously separate state and federal programs.
- Cap-and-trade revenue in the budget could flow to walking and bicycling projects if the legislature opts to allocate a portion of the first year’s auction proceeds.
See our recent blog for a quick update on the latest progress of these activities, and attend a webinar on June 17 at 10am for a more thorough update. Bring your questions and concerns about the future of Safe Routes to School funding in California for a lively discussion following the presentation by National Partnership staff and others. Please register in advance for this webinar.
