The vote was unanimous. MCOG staff has invested countless hours to ensure the benefits secured for Mendocino County under Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair & Accountability Act of 2017. Transportation funds will increase from a deficit to actual revenues available to address long deferred road system maintenance as well as multi-modal improvements, such as bicycle and pedestrian facilities and public transit needs.

The California Department of Finance calculated the average cost to motorists of SB 1 is less than $10/month for increases to both the gas tax and vehicle registration.

A report released in February 2018 by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA). calculated an annual savings of nearly $300 per household.
