BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Prior to the beginning of the fiscal year, staff made projections regarding the revenue received from Measure A, LTF, and TUMF funds for budget purposes. Additionally, staff received initial revenue allocation estimates related to STA revenues from the state. Staff has tracked the Measure A, LTF, and TUMF revenues on a monthly basis. Current trends indicate that Measure A and LTF receipts are about 8% and 5% lower, respectively, for the seven months ended January 31, 2008 compared to the same period last year. This downward trend is significantly greater than the final revenues recorded for FY 2006/07 which indicated a decrease of 1.7% and 0.7% in Measure A and LTF revenues, respectively. TUMF revenues have declined 63.6% for the six months ended December 31, 2007, compared to the same Agenda Item 713 3 period last year. This downward trend is significantly greater than the final revenues recorded for FY 2006/07, which indicated a decrease of 1.7%, 07%, and 53.2% in Measure A, LTF, and TUMF revenues, respectively. In October 2007, staff received from the state a revision of the STA revenue allocation estimates, which reflected a decrease of approximately $13,500,000. The primary cause was due to the exclusion of Proposition 1 B transit allocations that were included in the state's original estimate. In the last few months, it has become apparent that the housing crisis has had a significant effect on the Inland Empire's local economy. Accordingly, staff has taken a very conservative approach to this year's mid -year projection analysis based on the decreasing revenue trend noted since September 2007. Staff is recommending that the Commission decrease the current year revenue projections as follows: FY 2007/08 Revenue Projections Measure A LTF STAF TUMF Original (January 2007) $ 167,100,000 77, 840, 000 23,263,000 27,250,000 FY 2007/08 Budget $165,600,000 77, 840, 000 23,263,000 27,250,000 Revised for Mid -Year Adjustment $ 135,000,000 67,000,000 9,774,100 10,000,000 Decrease from Budget $ 30,600,000 10, 840, 000 13,488,900 17,250,000 For reference purposes, audited revenues for FY 2006/07 were approximately $154,540,000 (Measure A), $74,147,500 (LTF), $39,852,200 (TUMF), and $18,867,000 (STA). The decrease in Measure A revenues has a direct effect on the distributions to the geographic areas and related programs, especially local streets and roads (LSR). Accordingly, in addition to the revenue budget adjustments, Measure A budget adjustments are required for the LSR aggregating $11,872,000 as well as regional arterial expenditures of $3,042,000. Staff will report at a subsequent Plans and Programs Committee meeting on the effect of the decrease in Measure A Coachella Valley special transit expenditures of $760,000. It is anticipated that SunLine Transit Agency will submit a request to allocate available LTF revenues to replace the Measure A shortfall. The decrease in Measure A revenues also results in a decrease in the 1 % statutory limitation on administrative salaries and benefits. Based on a preliminary analysis. through December 31, 2007, it appears that this limitation will not be exceeded as Agenda Item 7B 4 • a result of the decreased Measure A revenue projection; however, staff will continue to monitor this limitation on a monthly basis. It is important to note that the 1 % limitation has never been exceeded in prior years. Staff has also decreased the Measure A revenue for administration by $300,000 to $3.4 million. This revised allocation does not exceed the 4% limitation on administration costs adopted by the Board in a prior year. The LTF audit was completed and financial statements were issued in November 2007. Staff has revised the original projections to include the carryover that is now available to the local governments and transit agencies amounting to $7,505,384. The revised projections include a budget adjustment to the Commission Administration and Planning revenues for $50,000 and $100,000, respectively. Adjustments to Administration and Planning expenditures are not required as there was sufficient fund balance at June 30, 2007, to cover the decreased revenues. The decrease for SB821 bicycle and pedestrian projects of $63,700 does not require a budget adjustment as unallocated SB821 reserves in the LTF are sufficient to cover this decrease. Staff will address the impact of the revised STA revenue allocation estimates at the February 2008 Plans and Programs Committee meeting, as staff is reviewing how STA expenditures will be augmented with Proposition 1 B funds. Upon Commission approval of this item, staff will provide this updated information to the necessary local governments and transit operators. Additionally, staff will continue to monitor FY 2007/08 revenue to determine if any adjustments to the revenue projections or Measure A administration are necessary.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Local Transportation Fund The LTF projection consists of revenues generated from a quarter cent of the statewide sales tax. These LTF funds are principally used to fund transit requirements within the county of Riverside (County). The Transportation Development Act (TDA) legislation that created LTF requires the County Auditor Controller to annually estimate the amount of revenues expected to be generated from the sales tax. That estimate then becomes the basis for geographic apportionment and for claimant allocation through the Short Range Transit Plan process, which commences in January for the next fiscal year. While the County is the taxing authority and maintains custodial responsibility over the LTF revenues, the Commission by statute is charged with administration of the LTF funding process. The practice has therefore been for the Commission staff to develop the revenue estimate and then submit it to the County Auditor Controller for concurrence. Once the Commission and the County have agreed on a revenue amount, Commission staff prepares the statutorily required apportionment. Apportionment is the process that assigns revenues to the three major geographic areas (as defined by TDA law) within the County: Western Riverside, Agenda Item 7C 9 Coachella Valley, and Palo Verde Valley. The revenues are divided based on the respective populations for each area. The apportionment occurs after off -the -top allocations for administration (distributed to the County, Commission, and Southern California Association of Governments and set asides for planning activities (3%) and bicycle and pedestrian projects (2%). Attachment 1 is the FY 2008/09 LTF apportionment based on a revenue estimate of $67 million. The estimate has been submitted to the County for its concurrence. The estimate is based on the revised projection for FY 2007/08 and assumes no change at this time. After the deductions for administration of $884,000 and set -asides of $3,292,120, the amount available for apportionment before reserves is $62,823,880. The balance available for apportionment is as follows: Apportionment Area Amount Western County Coachella Valley Palo Verde Valley Total $ 48,440,957 13,415,312 967,611 $ 62,823,880 In accordance with the Reserve Policy adopted by the Commission on January 12, 2005, a reserve of 10% for each apportionment area will be established and set -aside for FY 2008/09 for unforeseen cost increases or other emergency. For the Western County apportionment area, a portion of the reserve will be allocated to each of the transit operators. For public bus transit operators, the allocation of the reserve is based on each operator's proportionate share of FY 2006/07 LTF operating allocations. Operators may access reserve funds by amending their Short Range Transit Plans through the established amendment process. Measure A The Measure A projection consists of revenues generated from the local half -cent transactions and use tax approved by the voters in November 1988. These Measure A funds are principally used to fund highway, commuter rail, regional arterial, local streets and roads, commuter assistance, and specialized transportation projects needs in the three geographic areas of Riverside County. FY 2008/09 represents the conclusion of the 20-year term of the 1989 Measure A. The Measure A projection for FY 2008/09 is $135 million. The estimate is based on the revised projection for FY 2007/08 and assumes no change at this time. This projection will become the basis for the preparation of the FY 2008/09 Agenda Item 7C 10 • • budget. The budget process typically commences in January of each year following the development of the Measure A revenue projections. Additionally, the amounts for the local streets and roads and regional arterial programs are usually provided to the local jurisdictions for planning purposes. After the deduction for administration of $3.4 million, which is approximately 2.5% of Measure A revenues, the amount available for distribution to the three geographic areas is $131 million, which is allocated as follows: Geographic Area Western County Coachella Valley Palo Verde Valley Total Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fees Amount $ 97,990,000 32,687,000 923,000 $ 1.31,600,000 The TUMF projection consists of revenues generated from fees charged to new development to ensure it pays for the new transportation facilities needed to accommodate growth. As a result of a memorandum of understanding executed in 2003 between the Commission and the Western Riverside Council of Governments, the administrator of the TUMF program, the Commission receives 48.7% of the TUMF revenues, after an administrative allocation, for the Commission's regional arterial program. The revenue estimate for FY 2008/09 is $10 million. The estimate is based on the revised projection for FY 2007/08 and assumes no change at this time. State Transit Assistance State Transit Assistance (STA) revenues are generated from the statewide sales tax on gasoline and diesel fuel and are allocated by the state to the Commission on the basis of population and as a percentage of transit fare revenue. The state generally notifies the Commission of the subsequent fiscal year revenue allocation estimates in late January. Accordingly, the STA revenue projection for FY 2008/09 is not yet available for this staff report. Upon Commission approval of this item, staff will provide this information to the necessary local jurisdictions and transit operators for planning purposes.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION_ In 2004, the Commission approved 24 projects for the Western County TUMF regional arterial program. The total amount of the requested funding was $185 million. To date, funding has been programmed for 23 projects totaling $63 million primarily for project development work. Project sponsors are required to enter into formal agreements with the Commission for each individual project outlining the work to be performed by phase and funding amount. To date, 21 agreements have been executed totaling $61 million. One agreement is currently being processed and the last remaining agreement is planned to be initiated in FY 2008/09. Attachment 1 illustrates the projects that are under agreement. The table below identifies the amount of funding programmed per phase for those projects with executed agreements: PROJECT PHASE FUNDING PA&ED — Environmental $ 9.809 million PS&E — Design $ 10.055 million Right -of -Way $ 20.769 million Construction $ 20.536 million TOTAL $ 61.169 million Agenda Item 7D 15 Construction of the TUMF regional arterial program projects is well underway with the city of San Jacinto's Ramona Expressway project, the first to go to construction in February 2007 and completed in July 2007. Additional projects under construction are city of Corona's El Cerrito Avenue project, and city of Riverside's Van Buren Boulevard project. The construction schedule for the TUMF regional arterials projects is included in Attachment 2.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: In 2005 eighteen projects were awarded TE funds as part of the 2005 TE call for projects. TE funds are considered discretionary in nature and a component of the California Transportation Commission's (CTC) State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The TE funds must be allocated by the CTC in the same fashion that STIP funds are allocated. Due to the poor delivery issues surrounding projects funded in the previous - Transportation Enhancement Activity (TEA) in TEA-21, the CTC conditioned that TE funds must be allocated in the year they are programmed, or would be subject to reprogramming by the CTC. The TE funds essentially have a shelf -life and must be allocated in the year they are programmed, or the agency risks losing it to reprogramming actions. Corona's "Downtown Enhancement and Beautification Project — Sixth Street and Main Street Enhancement" was one of the eighteen awarded TE projects from the 2005 TE call for projects. The project was awarded a total of $1,416,300 of TE funds. Agenda Item 8 21 Subsequent to the TE award, Corona initiated the environmental and design phases for the project. The project is also tied into Corona's larger planned redevelopment of the downtown area. Corona recently learned that the overall redevelopment project will delay the ability of Corona to allocate the TE funds that are programmed in state's FY 2009/10. Due to the sensitivity of the CTC towards requests to delay fund. allocations to a later year, Corona has proposed a replacement project for the TE funds. Corona is proposing to transfer the $1,416,300 of approved TE funds from its Downtown Enhancement project to their Magnolia Avenue project. The Magnolia Avenue TE project was number 19 on the TE funding list and just below the funding line. When an awarded project in a Commission discretionary funding project call cannot be implemented, the approved substitution policy is normally to select the next project on the funding list. In this specific case, the next project on the funding list is Corona's Magnolia Avenue TE project. Since Corona's Magnolia Avenue project is the first project below the funding line, Corona's selection of its Magnolia Avenue TE is an acceptable substitution and consistent with the Commission project substitution policy. On January 14, 2008, the TE transfer request was brought before the Technical Advisory Committee and was unanimously approved.

Dear Anne: We would like to request a transfer of our TE funds for our Downtown Transportation Entrancement and Beautification Project to our Magnolia Avenue project. On August 29, 2005, the City of Corona submitted three applications in response to the June 29, 2005, Transportation Enhancement (TE) Discretionary Funds Call for Projects. Our applications were for the Downtown Transportation Enhancement and Beautification Project; East Sixth Street between El Sobrante Road and Riverside County Line; and Magnolia Avenue between East Sixth Street and 1-15. All of our projects scored well during the evaluation process and were approved for funding award. However, in the spirit of cooperation and to allow for a larger distribution of funds, the City of Corona agreed to allow our Magnolia Project to be placed below the funding cut-off line while funding was awarded to our Downtown and East Sixth Street projects. Since the time of our project awards, we have been working on the design and environmental phase for both of our projects that received funding in order to meet the project completion timeframes contained in the funding award. We have also been coordinating the design of the Downtown Transportation Enhancement and Beautification Project with our Redevelopment Agency because they are in the process of•a massive redevelopment project in the downtown area. We recently learned that this redevelopment project will impact the scheduling for our Downtown Transportation Enhancement project which will prevent us from meeting our project completion timeframe requirement. We therefore request approval of the transfer of our TE funding award from the Downtown Project to our Magnolia Project. 23 In discussing this request with your staff, we were advised that since our Magnolia Project did meet that application parameters and was awarded for funding during the evaluation process, the transfer of these funds should not be an issue. We look forward to working with RCTC on this request and thank you in advance for your consideration. Sin + rely, AQattan, P.E.

Staff is negotiating with HDR Engineering, Inc, and expects to bring a final contract to the February 13, 2008 Commission meeting; 3) Authorize the Chair, pursuant to legal counsel review, to execute the agreement on behalf of the Commission; 4) Authorize the Executive Director, pursuant to legal counsel review, to execute necessary, non -funding related Caltrans cooperative agreements for the project; 5) Authorize the Executive Director or designee to approve contingency work up to the total not to exceed amount as required for the project; and 6) Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: In December 2006, the commission approved the 10-Year Western County Highway Delivery Plan. The plan included the construction of two high occupancy Agenda Item 9 26 toll (HOT) lanes in each direction. Although the plan was approved, staff was directed to re-evaluate the project scope to determine if it was feasible to add additional mainline capacity without impacting toll feasibility. The reassessment determined that additional capacity was feasible with Measure A funding of the cost differential, approximately $800 million. The reassessment of financial feasibility work was presented by staff at the October 2007 Public/Private Financing and Delivery Plan Ad Hoc Committee. The Committee provided conceptual approval to proceed with the PR/ED phase of the 1-15 Corridor and HOT lane project. Staff was to bring to a future Committee meeting the revised project scope and a request to award a consultant contract to HDR Engineering, Inc. for the PR/ED phase of the project. Staff recommends that Agreement No. 08-31-059-00 be awarded to HDR Engineering, Inc. to provide preliminary engineering and environmental services for the preparation of PR/ED. Staff is negotiating with HDR Engineering, Inc. and expects to bring a final contract to the February 13, 2008 Commission meeting. The contract award including contingency is anticipated to total approximately $39 million and would extend approximately four years in duration for the PR/ED phase of the project. The total project cost including engineering and environmental work, right-of-way, construction, and construction support services is currently estimated at $1.6 billion. The proposed improvements to the 1-15 corridor extend approximately 43 miles from the San Bernardino County line to 1-215 and include the following: • San Bernardino County line to SR-74: Add two high occupancy toll' (HOT) lanes and one mixed flow lane in each direction; and • SR-74 to 1-215: Add 1 HOV lane in each direction. To start project development for the projects identified in the 10-Year Western County Highway Delivery Plan, staff initiated a request for qualifications (RFQ) to develop a ranked list of consultants to perform work for the PR/ED phase for these new projects. The consultant selection process was completed and a ranked list of firms was approved by the Commission at its July 2007 meeting. Staff has proceeded to negotiate with the firms on this approved list in order of ranking. In October 2007, the Commission awarded a contract to Parsons Transportation Group for the SR-91 /SR-71 Interchange project. At that time, staff stated negotiations would start with HDR Engineering, Inc., the next consultant on the Agenda Item 9 27 • • ranked list for the 1-10 Eastbound Truck Climbing Lane project when funds became available; however, funding has yet to become available. Meanwhile, funding for the 1-15 Corridor and HOT Lane project is available to start the PR/ED phase of work. Staff proposes to award a contract to the next consultant on the ranked list, HDR Engineering, Inc., to advance the 1-15 Corridor and HOT Lane project, which is also part of the 10-Year Western County Highway Delivery Plan. One firm, Jacobs, remains on the ranked consultant list from July 2007, and could be available should funding for the 1-10 Eastbound Truck Climbing Lane project be identified prior to the expiration of the list in July 2008. The FY 2007/08 budget includes $1.75 million for preliminary engineering expenditures for the 1-15 Corridor and HOT Lane project.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the Committee to: 1) Approve Agreement No. 06-66-027-16, Amendment No. 5 to Agreement 06-66-027, for the on -call strategic partnership advisory services with PB Consult, Inc. by extending contract term of performance to February 9, 2012, and augment the agreement by $493,266 to provide continued support of toll program activities; 2) Authorize the Chair, pursuant to legal counsel review, to execute the agreement on behalf of the Commission; and 3) Forward to the Commission for final action. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: The Commission entered into Agreement No. 06-66-027 for the purpose of providing strategic partnership advisory services with PB Consult, Inc. for innovative project financing and evaluation of potential toll road corridors in Riverside County. The contract term of performance is February 9, 2006 to February 9, 2008. Support for the development of a toll program including the potential future tolling of portions of the State Route 91, Interstate 15, and Mid County Parkway (MCP) corridors requires the continued services of PB Consult, Inc. As projects on these corridors proceed through the project approval and environmental document (PA/ED) work phase, the continued services of PB Consult, Inc. are desirable to ensure that toll and finance expertise and other toll program support is available to staff. Agenda Item 10 29 Augmenting the contract by $493,266 is composed of several tasks as follows: a) Support Commission staff with toll authority applications including performing special studies, negotiations, and attending meetings. b) Ongoing project management and general toll program support including coordination of tasks with other toll program consultants and between Commission toll projects, consultant contract management activities, and meetings. c) Develop a phased project implementation plan, modify traffic and revenue forecasts and cost estimates, and update the financial model and financial feasibility assessment for the MCP project. d) Finalize the draft financial plan prepared March 13, 2007, which develops financial models and financing strategies to fund the MCP project. This work would be provided by PB Consult, Inc. for $493,266 which is anticipated to be used as follows: FY 2007/08 - $20,000; FY 2008/09 - $375,000; FY 2009/10 - $78,266; and FY 2010/11 - $20,000. Staff recommends amending Agreement No. 06-66-027 by extending contract terms to February 9, 2012 and augmenting the compensation by $493,266.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Federal Advocacy Services services to execute the In November 2006, the Commission approved a two-year contract for federal legislative advocacy services with the Commission's long-standing Washington lobbyist Cliff Madison. In that same action, the Commission directed staff to asses the Commission's long-term federal advocacy needs and to return at a later date with recommendations to enhance the Commission's presence in Washington. The Commission has been ably served by Cliff Madison, who has been instrumental in facilitating the progress of the Perris Valley Line with Congress and the Administration. Mr. Madison has maintained a strong relationship with. the Riverside County congressional delegation and continues to provide access to key officials in Washington to help the Commission spread its message. With the next major transportation authorization bill now on the near horizon and the many crises facing America's transportation system, it is clear that the next Agenda Item 11 31 few years in Washington will be fundamentally different. This change in atmosphere provides challenges as well as opportunities. Given the continued growth of Riverside County and the funding gap to meet our minimum transportation needs, staff believes it is necessary to elevate the Commission's capacity to engage the federal government during these critical years. Therefore, after thorough vetting, staff is recommending the Commission retain the services of the highly qualified firm, The Skancke Company, led by Tom Skancke. Mr. Skancke and his associate, Kathy Ruffalo-Farnsworth, were interviewed along with John Murphy, President of the Federal Hill Group, as part of staff's assessment of the Commission's federal advocacy program. These two firms were the runners-up in response to the Commission's previous request for qualifications (RFQ), which resulted in the rehire of Cliff Madison. Both firms ranked high during the initial review process; however the Commission's needs at the time did not necessitate retaining multiple firms. Following standardized interviews with these two firms and the receipt of written addendums to their 2006 proposals, staff concluded that the joint proposal of Tom Skancke and Kathy Ruffalo-Farnsworth, with support from associate Ryan McGinness, provided the best fit for the Commission's needs in Washington. Tom Skancke is the president and CEO of The Skancke Company, a government and public affairs strategy company. For nearly two decades Mr. Skancke has worked on many transportation infrastructure related issues throughout the west and nationally. He has been involved with the past three major transportation reauthorization bills: ISTEA, TEA-21 and SAFETEA-LU. In September 2005, United States Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) appointed him to the National Surface Transportation Policy and Revenue Study commission, a twelve member commission created in Section 1909 in SAFETEA-LU. In March of 2007, Arizona State University president Michael Crow appointed Mr. Skancke to the Board of Advisors of the North American Center for Transborder Studies. Kathy Ruffalo-Farnsworth is a government affairs consultant who has had a broad, diverse, and bi-partisan career in public policy with 16 years of experience at both federal and state levels of government. Ms. Ruffalo-Farnsworth spent over 10 years working on Capitol Hill as a staff member to the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee — principally working on the development, drafting, and negotiating of legislation related to the federal highway program. During her tenure with the Committee, she worked on the ISTEA of 1991, the National Highway System Designation Act of 1995, TEA-21 of 1998 and the most recent federal transportation bill — SAFETEA-LU. Following her work on Capitol Hill, Ms. Ruffalo-Farnsworth spent six years as a senior policy advisor to Idaho Governor Dirk Kempthorne — currently the U.S. Secretary of the Interior. Agenda Item 11 • s 32 • Also part of the proposed team is Ryan McGinness. Mr. McGinness has worked in the federal policy and government affairs field for over a decade at the local, state and national levels. During that time, he has represented a broad range of clients, from municipal to state governments, family businesses to multi -national corporations. He primarily focuses on transportation, environment, and energy policy. During his tenure in Washington, he has served on the Washington policy staffs of both U.S. Senator John Ensign and Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn. Staff proposes an agreement with the The Skancke Company that begins March 1, 2008 and expires December 31, 2010. The agreement will contain three additional one-year extension options at the Commission's discretion. Retaining The Skancke Company through 2010, with options through 2013, ensures that the firm's services will be available through the likely timeframe for enactment of the next federal transportation authorization bill. Staff recommends a monthly retainer fee of $12,000 until December 31, 2008, and $15,000 between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010. Each one-year extension option will index the fee according to the Consumer Price Index (CPI). These rates are consistent with fees for similar services for other regional transportation agencies and local governments. The Skancke Company will be required to provide a 90-day notice of termination as well as regular written reports to the Commission, including a year-end summary of key accomplishments. Cliff Madison will remain under contract with the Commission until December 31, 2008, at which time the Commission has discretion to exercise a two-year extension of Mr. Madison's contract. Staff envisions Mr. Madison continuing to play a lead role in the Commission's federal advocacy efforts and looks to his expertise to carry the Commission forward. State Update The state legislature is already in session and is finishing up work on "two-year" bills that were held -over from 2007 for more input and deliberation. Among them are two bills on the topic of the state Public Utilities Commission (PUC) Section 190 grade separation funding program. This long-standing program provides $15 million per year across California for high -priority grade separation projects. Current legislation provides a complex process for operating the program and vetting projects. This process has come under increasing scrutiny as the need for critical grade separations rises across the state. Last year . Riverside County Assemblyman John J. Benoit (R-Bermuda Dunes) and his colleague Assemblymember Galgiani (D-Merced) jointly sponsored a state audit request of the program that produced analysis leading to the movement of the two aforementioned bills. Agenda Item 11 33 AB 660 by Assemblymember Galgiani provides "clean-up" language to the PUC Section 190 program's statutes, generally modifying the law to reflect the changing circumstances of delivering grade separation projects in California. However, the bill contains amendments that concern Commission staff. First, the bill proposes to disqualify from funding projects which begin construction prior to allocation of PUC Section 190 funding. Staff believes this change restricts the flexibility of local agencies to aggressively pursue construction of high -priority projects. Second, the bill seeks to give the legislature a role in approving funding allocations in excess of $5 million in addition to the current California Transportation Commission (CTC) approval required. Staff believes this step is contrary to the goals of expediting funding and project delivery for the highest - priority projects and adds yet another step to a process that the state auditor has cited as already complicated. These two issues aside, staff finds the bill to be heading in the right direction in terms of improving the PUC Section 190 program and making it more relevant to the needs of transportation agencies involved in building grade separations. Therefore, staff recommends a SUPPORT IF AMENDED position on AB 660. The second bill of interest is AB 353 by Inland Empire Assemblymember Wilmer Amina Carter (D-Rialto). Currently, the PUC has the authority to award $15 million to the number -one priority grade separation project in California (according to the PUC priority list), whereas all other projects on the priority list - may only receive $5 million. This bill allows the PUC to grant $15 million to the top five priority projects. Expanded eligibility for a higher allocation reflects the reality that grade separation projects average $26 million in California and in the case of some Riverside County projects more than twice that amount. Therefore, only $5 million to priority projects does not have the same impact on a project's delivery that it did when the program was created. This bill allows more projects to receive a larger share of funding that can have a more significant benefit on financial viability of important projects. Nonetheless, the budget's limitation to $15 million annually remains a problem for the program's effectiveness. Assemblymember Carter's bill again provides a step in the right direction. Staff recommends the Commission adopt a SUPPORT position on AB 353 (Carter).
