Priorities Spotlight - California’s Five-Year Infrastructure Plan 2017
The California Infrastructure Planning Act requires the Governor to submit a five-year
infrastructure plan to the Legislature for consideration with the annual budget bill.
The 2017 Five-Year Infrastructure Plan (Plan) reflects the Governor’s proposal for investing
$43 billion in state infrastructure over the next five years.
Relative to last year, there is less General Fund available for investment in infrastructure
due to the decline in expected General Fund revenues. As a result, this year’s Plan
reflects a greater reliance on debt to make the most critical infrastructure investments.
The Plan also reflects the Governor’s proposed transportation package that will provide
$43 billion over the next decade to improve the maintenance of highways and roads,
expand public transit, and support critical trade corridors.
