Newsmaker, Aug. 15, 2008: Leland Yee

The state senator’s bill that would ease congestion, but increase vehicle license fees for Bay Area residents, was approved Thursday by the California Assembly. Senate Bill 1731 will institute an additional $1 vehicle license fee for residents of the Bay Area to expand the roving tow trucks that operate on freeways, complete the detection system to monitor freeway conditions, expand ramp metering and implement other operational strategies.
