Senate Bill 1226 authorizes a private, nonprofit mutual benefit corporation formed for the purposes of providing services to zero-emission transportation systems or facilities to join a joint powers authority or enter into a joint powers agreement with one or more public agencies. The purpose of the joint power authority or agreement must be to facilitate the development, construction, and operation of zero-emission transportation systems or facilities that lower greenhouse gases, reduce vehicle congestion and vehicle miles traveled, and improve public transit connections. A joint powers authority formed under SB 1226 is prohibited from incurring debt.
