"Professional engineers and surveyors dedicated to building a better California."
Proposition 53 would be a massive and unworkable impediment to improving infrastructure systems in the state of California, which is why ACEC California has joined the broad and diverse coalition to oppose the measure.
“ACEC California members know that infrastructure systems– transportation, water, education – are critical to our future economic success. That is why we are opposing Prop 53, which jeopardizes our ability to repair or expand outdated infrastructure systems. Our communities already suffer from massive backlogs of local infrastructure needs, including outdated water supply and delivery systems, unsafe bridges, overpasses and freeways, and community hospitals that require earthquake retrofits. Prop 53 would exacerbate and extend this backlog to the detriment of all Californians,” said Brad Diede, Executive Director of ACEC California.
Proposition 53 has amassed a coalition of more than 200 leading organizations that are opposing the measure, including the California Chamber of Commerce, the California State Sheriff’s Association, the California League of Cities and the California State Association of Counties.
