Assemblymember McCarty’s Statement on State Funding for Sacramento Streetcar

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Statement from Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D – Sacramento) on Sacramento Streetcar funding:

“I am pleased that our state’s cap and trade funds have awarded $30 million to Sacramento’s streetcar project.  This funding will close the gap between existing local and federal funds for the successful completion of the project to connect West Sacramento and Sacramento.  This project is a win-win-win for the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, for promoting infill development, and for neighborhood connectivity.  I am looking forward to seeing streetcars roll through Downtown Sacramento again after a 70 year absence.”
