California Senate Transportation Committee Passes Several Bills, Including SB152, a change of how Active Transportation Program funding is allocated

California’s Senate Transportation Committee passed several bills yesterday, as listed at the end of this post. Among them was one that seeks to dramatically change the way funding is allocated in the Active Transportation Program (ATP). It drew strong opposition, but its author, Senator Jim Beall (D-Campbell), who chairs the committee, pledged to “continue working with all parties” to find a compromise. However, he warned, “you can’t please everybody.”
