(AP) - The California Senate has approved more than $900 million worth of road and train projects that were promised to lawmakers in order to secure their support for a hike in gas taxes and vehicle fees.

It took the full negotiating power of California Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic legislative leaders to push their transportation funding deal across the finish line Thursday.
