Bill to Reduce Bay Area Pollution and Boost Public Transit Hits High Speed | Senator Leland Yee, Ph.D.: "“Public transit should be playing a much larger role in helping meet our clean air goals,” said Josh Shaw of the California Transit Association. “SB 1339 creates an incentive for employers and employees by allowing for lower payroll taxes while providing several cost-effective options to help people get out of their car and using public transit.”
“We'll never have clean air in this state until we make it easier for people who want to take transit or ride a bike to work to do so,” said Kathryn Phillips, Director of Sierra Club California. “This bill is one way to do that. It will give people more commuting options and it will move the Bay Area another step closer to healthy air and lower global warming pollution.”"
