Sacramento – The California Transportation Foundation (CTF) today honored Assemblymember Tom Daly (D – Anaheim) as its “Elected Official of the Year” for 2014.
Daly, who serves as a member of the Assembly Transportation Committee, was the author last year of Assembly Bill 401, which provides new authority to regional transportation agencies, and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), to utilize the design-build procurement method on transportation construction projects.
SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Daly (D-Anaheim) released the following statement after a bipartisan vote on the Rainy Day Fund proposal:
“Today, I enthusiastically supported placing the Rainy Day Fund proposal on the November ballot. The Rainy Day Fund is a significant and responsible step toward ending the budget instability of the past. Building a genuine reserve is the right and prudent thing to do. Having a genuine reserve on-hand, in advance of future economic downtimes, will help California avoid drastic cuts to education and social programs, while also providing certainty to the job market.”
On April 10th, the Association of California Cities – Orange County presented Assemblyman Tom Daly with the Collaborative Lawmaker Award for his efforts to positively impact Orange County infrastructure through landmark transportation legislation, Assembly Bill 401.
Last year, Assemblyman Daly led the successful passage of this bill that enables an innovative, cost-savings approach to the $1.3 billion widening of Interstate 405 in Orange County. The Orange County Transportation Authority says this new law will save Orange County taxpayers approximately $100 million and speed up the project completion date by two to three years. Already, other regional transportation agencies have embraced this new law, leading to massive savings for taxpayers across the state.
