Introduced by Assembly Member Frazier

February 15, 2018

An act to amend Sections 13975 and 14500 of, and to repeal Section 14534.1 of, the Government Code, relating to transportation.


AB 2734, Frazier. California Transportation Commission.
Existing law establishes in state government the Transportation Agency, which includes various departments and state entities, including the California Transportation Commission. Existing law vests the California Transportation Commission with specified powers, duties, and functions relative to transportation matters. Existing law requires the commission to retain independent authority to perform the duties and functions prescribed to it under any provision of law.
This bill would exclude the California Transportation Commission from the Transportation Agency, establish it as an entity in state government, and require it to act in an independent oversight role. The bill would also make conforming changes.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
