Ask Governor Newsom to sign the Complete Streets Bill today!

The Complete Streets for Active Living Bill (SB 127) needs one more thing before it becomes law: a signature from Governor Newsom.

Caltrans has asked for a veto, so please email the governor your support for the Complete Streets Bill
right now!Caltrans is too often an obstacle when local communities try to create safer streets. The Complete Streets Bill requires them to include safety in their repaving and rebuilding projects. It will save lives.

Can you speak out for the Complete Streets Bill today? It just takes a minute.
Yes! I’ll take action! >>
Thank you for supporting SB 127 and Complete Streets!
