    OCTA has three Measure M2 public committees that are legislatively mandated and meet regularly, providing advice and input on the Authority’s M2-related programs. The three standing public committees are:

    Taxpayers Oversight Committee 

    The Taxpayers Oversight Committee (TOC) is an independent committee formed after the passage of Measure M in 1990. The 11-member committee upholds the integrity of the measure by monitoring the use of Measure M funds and ensuring that all revenue collected from Measure M is spent on voter-approved transportation projects. This committee certifies annually that Measure M funds are spent in compliance with the plan. Learn More.

    Environmental Oversight Committee 

    The 12-member Environmental Oversight Committee makes recommendations on the allocation of M2 Freeway Environmental Mitigation Program (Mitigation Program) funds and monitors the execution of a master agreement between OCTA and state and federal resource agencies. The Mitigation Program allocates funds to acquire land and fund habitat restoration projects in exchange for streamlined projects approvals for all M2 freeway improvement projects. Learn More.

    Environmental Cleanup Allocation Committee

    The 14-member Environmental Cleanup Allocation Committee is a technical working committee that makes recommendations on a competitive funding process to implement street- and highway-related water quality improvement projects. Program funds are allocated on a countywide competitive basis to assist jurisdictions in meeting the Clean Water Act for controlling transportation-generated pollution. Learn More.
