Governor Brown, Senate President pro Tempore and Assembly Speaker Announce Landmark Road Repair and Transportation Investment Package

(Sacramento) - Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr., Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon today joined labor, business and local leaders to announce a landmark transportation investment to fix our roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California and put more dollars toward transit and safety.
