Because of an outdated city law, the state of California could cut off funding we need to repair roads, build parks, and make sure our city is prepared for a changing climate. Measure D is a simple fix to protect more than $120 million per year in state infrastructure funding while increasing taxpayer accountability and making sure good jobs go to local workers.
Vote Yes on D to rebuild our infrastructure, invest in our future, and safeguard San Diego.

What's at Stake
In 2022, San Diego received $123.4 million in state funds to fix streets, upgrade parks and rebuild neighborhoods. That funding could be cut off at any time.
California temporarily froze funding needed to secure our water supply in 2018. The 18-month delay raised the price tag at least $130 million—money San Diegans will have to pay. We can’t afford that kind of risk.
There’s a $4.3 gap between our city’s 5-year infrastructure goals and city funding. We’re counting on California to fill the lion’s share. Let’s make sure state funding is never in doubt.
Good Jobs for Local Workers
Measure D will give the city tools to make sure good jobs go to local workers instead, especially San Diego’s many veterans who have served our country.
How It Works
Measure D updates San Diego contracting rules to meet state funding requirements. It restores the city’s ability to use project labor agreements to ensure good jobs go to local workers and to set standards for fair pay and strong workplace protections. And it creates new public disclosure and oversight to protect San Diego taxpayers.
