Priorities Spotlight - California’s Five-Year Infrastructure Plan 2014

Since 1999, the California Infrastructure Planning Act has required the Governor to submit to the Legislature a five-year infrastructure plan for consideration with the annual budget bill.This document presents the Governor’s proposed plan for investing $56.7 billion in state infrastructure over the next five years.

Like most states in the nation, the fiscal challenges created by the Great Recession resulted in California deferring many infrastructure and maintenance investments.Consequently, an infrastructure plan has not been released since 2008.Prior plans often lacked prioritization and included hundreds of projects that departments identified as needed, but did not identify funding to pay for them.In addition, prior plans failed to discuss the costs to maintain state assets as well as the backlog of deferred maintenance.The 2014 Plan aims to correct these shortcomings and make the document more relevant.Future plans will continue this work.
