AB 2741, Salas. Long-range transportation planning: California Transportation Plan.
Existing law requires the Department of Transportation to complete the first update of the California Transportation Plan by December 31, 2015, and to update the plan every 5 years thereafter. Existing law requires the California Transportation Commission to review the plan and make certain recommendations. Existing law requires the Governor to adopt the plan and to submit it to the Legislature and the United States Secretary of Transportation.
This bill, beginning in 2020, would require updates to the plan to be approved by the commission prior to submission to the Legislature and the Governor. The bill would require the department to submit a draft of its proposed update to the commission for its comments by June 30, 2020, and every 5 years thereafter. The bill, if the commission does not approve an updated plan, would require the department to revise its proposed update in consultation with the commission. The bill would make other conforming changes.
