Description
The California Transportation Commission (CTC) Records consist of 41 cubic feet of textual records, with selected photographs and maps interfiled, reflecting the Commission's study, review, planning, policy development, and funding allocation of California's transportation systems. The records date from 1978-1990 covering the first twelve years of a public agency still functioning today.
Background
The California Transportation Commission (CTC) was created by the 1977 Statutes, operative as of February 1, 1978, to assume the duties and responsibilities of four existing bodies: the California Toll Bridge Authority, State Transportation Board, State Aeronautics Board, and California Highway Commission (Statutes of 1977, Chapter 1106). According to Section 2 of Chapter 1106, the Commission was created for the purposes of simplifying and clarifying the transportation planning and programming process; consolidating the various transportation boards and commissions into a single planning and fund allocation commission; and to increase the responsibility and effectiveness of the Legislature in deciding state transportation policy.
