Requires that certain revenues generated by a 2017 transportation funding law be used only for transportation purposes and generally prohibits Legislature from diverting funds to other purposes. Proposition 69 is a legislative constitutional amendment.

Fiscal Impact: No direct effect on the amount of state and local revenues or costs but could affect how some monies are spent.

Semi-Official Election Results:

Yes votes: 3,104,388 [80.37%]

No votes: 758,267 [19.63%]



Proponents argue that Proposition 69 ensures existing transportation revenues we pay at the pump and when we register our vehicles can ONLY be used for road and transportation improvement projects. Proposition 69 constitutionally protects these funds by prohibiting the legislature from using these revenues for non-transportation purposes.

Opponents believe Sacramento’s broken promises have led to a rundown, outdated, and congested transportation system throughout California and that it protects transportation money that will not fix or build any new roads. They argue that it does not adequately protect the new revenue from raising the gas tax in 2017.
