On May 19, 1992, the governor signed AB 152 (Katz) into law. This act merged the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission and the Southern California Rapid Transit District and created Metro (Metro).
As part of AB 152, the MTA was to establish a “Citizens’ Advisory Council” whose “membership shall reflect a broad spectrum of interest and all geographic areas of the County”.
The Community Advisory Council or CAC is legislatively identified in Public Utility Code §13000 et seq. as the Citizens’ Advisory Council.
