SB 1 Toolkit (Updated: 03/21/18)
The goal of the city and county toolkit is to help you inform and educate your community about projects and associated benefits that are being made possible by SB 1 – the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. The information is most informative/effective when you provide specific details about local projects happening in your city/county.
SB 1: The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017
For cities, SB 1 will double the amount of revenues they each receive from the state for their local street maintenance and rehabilitation needs. Annually, $500 to $650 million will go to cities statewide, allocated on a per capita basis. A vast majority of the new revenues for cities will come out of the newly created Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) where cities will have to prioritize fixing their existing infrastructure first before having some additional flexibility for those funds for other transportation needs.
Below, is a listing of the estimated revenue generated from of SB 1 and when they go into effect:
- $1.8 billion – 12 cent increase to gasoline excise tax (Nov. 1, 2017)
- $730 million – 20 cent increase to diesel excise tax (Nov. 1, 2017)
- $300 million – 4% addition to diesel sales tax (Nov. 1, 2017)
- $704 million – One-time loan repayment (2017-2020)
