County supervisor Leticia Perez and officials from throughout Kern County joined labor and transportation advocates Thursday to urge the passage of a state transportation funding bill.

Advocates want a transportation funding package to pass by April 6, the last day of the legislative session before lawmakers go on spring recess.

Arvin Mayor Jose Gurrola and Wasco Councilmember Alex Garcia were also in attendance.


According to supporters of the bill, the longer the legislature delays on a transportation funding package, the worse the damage will get and the more it will cost to fix.
