  4. 4. Welcome to Streets For All’s Mobility Report Card, a first-of-its-kind comprehensive look at each member of the California Legislature and their mobility record over the past two years. The Report Card is based on the voting and authorship records of each member of the Legislature with respect to all bills sponsored or supported by Streets For All during the 2021-2022 legislative session. This legislation would not have been possible without the hard work of other advocacy organizations and mobility-minded legislators, many of whom we honor in this report. California is plagued with many chronic transportation challenges. The design of car-centric communities over the past century has created a multitude of crises impacting the safety, environment, and quality of life of all Californians— including increased traffic congestion, air and noise pollution, expensive housing costs, and traffic violence. The Streets For All State Team advocates at the California Legislature and state agencies to create a safe, equitable transportation system that serves all people, aligns with our climate goals, and meets the needs of a diverse and robust economy on track to be the fourth largest in the world. Letter from the Co-Directors 2
  5. 5. To achieve these goals, we need safe, reliable, sustainable, and multimodal transportation. The state must prioritize rail, dedicated bus lanes, protected bicycle lanes, and pedestrian infrastructure over single occupancy vehicles—a complete reversal of the last several decades of harmful car-centric transportation policy. It is time to embrace innovative solutions like aerial gondolas, e-bikes, e-scooters, curb management technology, and automated and electrified trains while avoiding gadgetbahns and scams that claim to magically fix traffic. These antics only induce more car dependency and create environmentally harmful infrastructure. California needs land use policy that energizes our urban centers by prioritizing space for housing, businesses, transit, and bicycle/ pedestrian infrastructure over privately owned vehicle storage or roadway capacity. The Legislature is making serious efforts to tackle these mobility issues. This report highlights the key bills and individual legislators helping to create a better future. This report: • Provides our allies and partners with valuable information to identify legislators with similar policy objectives • Encourages legislators and their staff to improve their support for mobility policy in future sessions • Recognizes legislators for strong voting records and brings constructive attention to those without This report card is a retrospective of what went right, what went wrong, and who contributed to advancing mobility in California— it serves as a reminder to legislators: Californians want better transportation options and we deserve representatives who are aligned on that mission. Streets For All ensures accountability by watching every vote and abstention through each step of the legislative process. Our sincere thanks for reading and sharing this report with your community. We could not be successful in this work without your support. Sincerely, Marc Vukcevich and Bubba Fish Co-Directors, State Policy Streets For All 3
  6. 6. All Californians have the right to use our streets and public spaces safely, comfortably, and efficiently regardless of their age, income, race, gender, geography, or abilities. Everyone benefits from complete streets, which offer safety, comfort, and convenience for all users. Now is the time for bold action. Small, incremental steps will not suffice when thousands of lives are cut short by traffic violence each year and climate change threatens our very existence. What We Fight For Streets For All believes... 4
  7. 7. What We Believe Long-term planning is always more effective than a quick fix. All too often, major infrastructure projects suffer from short-term thinking. We support transformative plans that will put us on the right path today to creating a better, safer, and healthier future for us all. California has the potential to become a model for other states to emulate as we fight climate change and make strides to solve our congestion and traffic violence crises. We will only accomplish our goals by welcoming views from a wide swath of advocates, including people of all races, genders, ages, abilities, neighborhoods, and backgrounds. This philosophy guides our work— the legislation we develop, the policies we champion, and the legislators we support. Metro Buses, Pershing Square Olenka Kotyk 5

  29. 29. This Mobility Report Card is intended to arm advocates across California with the information they need to assess their legislators’ mobility voting records. We hope this report helps start or continue conversations between advocates and their elected leaders. A high score provides an opportunity for advocates to acknowledge and thank their electeds for their leadership on mobility issues, whereas advocates can leverage less than stellar scores to reconnect with legislators and reaffirm the importance of equitable, sustainable, and safe transportation options for all Californians. Constituents may also consider sharing the news on social media, with press outlets, in their local political organizations, and with other organizations or advocates to assist them in communicating the impact of their legislators’ mobility choices. We hope that this report card can spark a conversation with your representatives about how policy can be leveraged to create a safe, mobile, and equitable society. Streets For All is providing a tool with this report to share your legislators’ scores and raise awareness of their mobility records at streetsforall.org/report-card, How to Leverage this Report 27
  30. 30. Streets For All hopes this report inspires policymakers to strengthen their efforts to advance mobility in California. High scores reflect substantive support and authorship on legislation that moves the state closer to sustainable and widespread multimodal transportation. Average scores indicate areas for improvement. Low scores point to opportunities for voters to apply pressure on their representatives to improve. As the new session begins, we urge lawmakers to support, sponsor, and author ambitious legislation that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, decreases vehicle miles traveled, increases funding for services that support cycling, walking, micromobilty, accessible devices, and transit. Streets For All is committed to providing advice and support to legislators who share our goals and can work together to create a better mobility future. To collaborate with us, email state@streetsforall.org. How can Legislators Improve? 28
  31. 31. Methodology Legislators were evaluated based on their voting and bill authorship history with respect to legislation sponsored or endorsed by Streets For All using the following point system. Legislators received +1 point for voting AYE on any Streets For All supported bill in committee or on the floor, -0.3 for an abstention*, and -1 for a NAY vote. Points were totaled for each Streets For All endorsed bill, resulting in a cumulative subtotal. Extra points were added based on bill authorship, +1.5 for authors, +0.75 for principal co-authors, and +0.5 for co-authors. * We did our best to remove as many excused absences as we could find from our data set, please reach out if you have any concerns. Scores were calculated by dividing the total earned points for each legislator by the total number of voting opportunities and then normalizing their score on a 0-100% scale respective to all other legislators. Legislators who scored above 100% were given the grade of extraordinary. Bills sponsored by other organizations are scored with the same weight as bills sponsored by Streets For All. We take as much pride in supporting legislation created by other advocates as we do our own. Gaslamp Quarter Station, San Diego Jared Murray 29
