A report, "The Economic Impacts of Senate Bill 1 on California," was released in February 2018 by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA). This research was conducted for a coalition of California transportation associations – The California Alliance for Jobs, The California Transit Association and Transportation California – by the economics & research team at the Washington, D.C.-based ARTBA.

According to the report, the transportation investment enacted under SB1 will support at least $182.6 billion in increased economic activity and benefits for California residents and businesses over the next 10 years, averaging $18.3 billion per year. As the investment increases during this period, SB 1 will support an additional 682,029 job-years throughout all sectors of the state’s economy, translating to an average of 68,203 jobs each year. (SB1 does not have a sunset, so will continue beyond the ten-year projections.)
