SCAG's 2015 State Legislative Priorities described below are the recommendations arising from the Legislative/Communications & Membership Committee and stakeholder input at the 2014 Southern California Economic Recovery & Job Creation Summit that build upon the agency's prior Regional Council-approved legislative objectives and achievements from previous State legislative sessions to continue to advance policies that will be most effective to expedite project delivery, increase funding for transportation, and create jobs and initiate economic recovery throughout the region.

Project Streamlining & Expediting

Support California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) modernization and process reform to expedite project delivery and promote job creation. Promote design-build, innovative procurement of projects, and Public-Private-Partnerships (P3s) where appropriate for more efficient project delivery.
