Road Charge Technical Advisory Committee

The California Road Charge Technical Advisory Committee was established in 2014 by Senate Bill 1077 (DeSaulnier - Chapter 835, Statutes of 2014). SB 1077 created the California Road Charge Pilot Program and tasked the Chair of the Commission, in consultation with the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) to convene a fifteen member Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to study road charge alternatives to the gas tax, gather public comment, and make recommendations to CalSTA regarding the design of a road charge pilot program. The law further specifies that the TAC may make recommendations on the criteria to be used to evaluate the pilot program. CalSTA published the Road Charge Pilot Program Report on December 8, 2017. The Commission included their recommendations regarding the pilot program in its annual report to the Legislature.

In 2018, Senate Bill 1328 (Beall - Chapter 698, Statutes of 2018) extended the operations of the Road Charge TAC until January 1, 2023.
