Less congested roads on way

Senate Bill 375, which was recently passed by the state Legislature and is awaiting the governor’s signature, would help the Bay Area cut down on traffic congestion — a move that would be good for workers and businesses. By encouraging cities and counties to have housing built near commercial centers or transit, the government will help boost businesses by providing work forces where they are needed — without making the workers spend too much time commuting. Another upshot to the legislation is the potential environmental benefits that could come from having fewer cars on the road.General OpinionOpinion
