Assemblymember Nazarian’s Slow Streets Act Signed by Governor Newsom

AB 773, the Slow Streets Act, authored by Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian (D-Van Nuys) was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom today and will now permanently allow local jurisdictions to restrict traffic on selected streets. The legislation expands on Governor Newsom’s Emergency Executive Order, which granted local areas the ability to implement Slow Streets Programs as a response to COVID-19 public health guidelines. “Los Angeles’ Slow Streets program has offered children, families, and constituents throughout our city the opportunity to play, exercise, and socialize, safely, in their own neighborhoods throughout the pandemic and can now permanently be expanded throughout California,” said Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian.
