CEQA Transportation Impacts (SB 743)

SB 743 (Steinberg, 2013) updates the way transportation impacts are measured in California for new development projects, making sure they are built in a way that allows Californians more options to drive less. This change will help us achieve our climate commitments, preserve our environment, improve our health and safety--particularly for our most vulnerable residents--and boost our economy by prioritizing co-located jobs, services, and housing. It will also reduce the time we need to spend in our cars to get places and provide more choices for how we travel, which will help to promote business, provide access to opportunity, and improve the quality of life across our state.
