BART urges lawmakers to save transportation bill

With state legislators in the midst of a seven-week stalemate over California’s $15.2 billion budget deficit, BART officials have sent a letter out to local politicians urging them to support a program that could bring up to $50 million for the regional transportation system.

The program in question, the State Transit Assistance Fund, would allocate $559 million for mass public-transit projects in urban areas, and road and infrastructure rehabilitation in rural areas in California, according to the state’s Web site.
