LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2250, Daly. Toll facilities: revenues.
Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of the state highway system. Existing law authorizes tolls to be imposed on certain facilities that are part of the state highway system, including toll roads, toll bridges, and high-occupancy toll lanes. Existing law, in certain cases, provides for the toll facilities to be administered by local agencies.
This bill would require any toll revenues generated from a managed lane on the state highway system that is administered by a local agency to be expended only within the respective corridor in which the managed lane is located. The bill would define “managed lane” for these purposes.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

14106.
