The Legislature hereby finds and declares all of the following:
(a) Recognizing the scarcity of resources available for all transportation development,
alternative methods of financing provided in this division are needed to finance the
cost of constructing, developing, acquiring, and maintaining and providing highways,
streets, roads, and public transportation services in the County of Riverside and
these methods will increase economic opportunities, contribute to economic development,
be in the public interest and serve a public purpose, and promote the health, safety,
and welfare of the citizens within the County of Riverside.
(b) It is the intent of the Legislature, in enacting this division, that the County
of Riverside continue to receive its equitable share of funds under the state transportation
improvement program and that incentives be provided to reward rather than to penalize
counties that adopt local sales tax measures.
(c) It is in the public interest to allow the voters of Riverside County to adopt
a specific revenue source and to authorize new duties for the Riverside County Transportation
Commission so that local decisions can be implemented in a timely manner to provide
improvements to the transportation system.
