  • STATE LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Impacts of the State General Fund Deficit on
Transportation
  • Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation
    Authority

18
Impacts Of The State Budget Deficit On
Transportation
  • The State Legislature is being asked to reduce
    funding for transportation projects and programs
    for the next 18 months by over 1.8 billion
    statewide and 500 million in Los Angeles County
    alone. This represents more than one quarter of
    all the States programmed transportation
    infrastructure spending. In addition, the State
    Highway Account has been projected to experience
    significant shortfalls. These two factors have
    created a crisis in funding for transportation
    statewide.
  • The MTA has prepared the attached briefing book
    to provide legislators with a summary of projects
    in Los Angeles County that could be affected by
    these reductions. While no specific project has
    been targeted for elimination, projects in the
    Traffic Congestion Relief Plan (TCRP) and the
    State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)
    will experience a funding shortage. We hope that
    in formation helps convey the magnitude of
    transportation infrastructure investment at risk
    in Los Angeles County.
  • For example, funding for projects such as the
    Eastside Light Rail Line, San Fernando Valley
    East/West Busway, Mid-City/Westside Exposition
    Transit Corridor improvements and a myriad of
    freeway improvement projects could be eliminated
    or seriously delayed. Also facing reductions are
    funding for street and road repair and basic bus
    service.
  • All of these reductions or delays will also
    delay the economic benefits that accompany
    transportation spending.
  • In March 2002 the voters of the State
    overwhelmingly approved Proposition 42,
    permanently allocating the sales tax on gasoline
    to these types of projects. As the Legislature
    considers the Governors request to suspend
    Proposition 42, in order to implement these
    reductions, it is important to clearly identify
    what is at stake.

20
Impacts of the State General Fund Deficit on
Transportation
  • Governors Mid-Year Reductions include 1.8 B in
    transportation cuts statewide, for FY 2003 and FY
    2004, to the following programs
  • Traffic Congestion Relief Program (TCRP) projects
  • State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)
    projects
  • City/County TCRP subventions for streets and
    roads
  • State Transit Assistance for transit operators
  • Governor would combine TCRP and STIP with new
    oversight and priority-setting responsibilities
    for CTC
  • Combined TCRP/STIP program would be under-funded
    by at least 1.5 B
  • CTC to work with RTPAs to implement at least 1.5
    B in cuts
