Is Newsom coming for your Highway Construction Money?
Mike McManus, Director of Engineering Construction & Industry Relations
The Governor issued an Executive Order (EO) recently that was largely unnoticed because of all Washington, D.C. noise. The EO will have potentially major effects on the highway construction sector and the road and highway infrastructure statewide. Now the Governor is calling for transportation funding to align with state goals on climate and the environment, and to help people find ways to use public transit or bicycles. For those of you who don't remember the first Jerry Brown governorship, he tried the same thing in different ways in the 1970's. He attempted to stop all spending on highway construction, and even sold off purchased rights of way for new freeways in several urban areas.
