by Port News Editorial Staff

A record $2.3 billion investment for California’s ports. Governor Gavin Newsom announced this yesterday while presenting the 2022-2023 state budget proposal.

The plan includes: $1.2 billion for projects designed to increase freight movement capacity on rail and roads serving ports and at port terminals; $875 million for zero-emission port equipment, short-haul trucks, and infrastructure; $110 million for a training campus to bolster workforce resilience in the face of supply chain disruption and accelerate the implementation of zero-emission equipment and technology; $40 million to improve the state’s ability to issue commercial driver’s licenses; and $30 million for operational and process improvements at ports.
