Senate Bill (SB) 375, authored by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, was signed into law on September 30, 2008. SB 375 is the most ambitious attempt by any state in the country to forge a closer link between transportation investments and land use decisions. The bill integrates planning processes that are currently disjointed for transportation, land use, and housing, with the goal of reducing the amount that people have to drive, along with associated GHG emissions. The major provisions of this lengthy and complicated bill are listed below.
