Gas Tax Petition

Gas Tax Petition

Petition to the California Legislature

WHEREAS: Longtime gas tax proponent Jim Beall (D - San Jose) has joined with Assemblyman Jim Frazier to propose a 12 cent a gallon tax increase on gas combined with a 20 cent a gallon diesel tax increase, in addition to in new registration fees. This proposal would amount to a 3.8 billion dollar a year tax increase.

WHEREAS: The California Air Resources Board (CARB) recently imposed a new hidden gas tax. This tax increase is estimated to have already added 10-15 cents a gallon to the price of gas.

WHEREAS: Even without counting CARB's hidden gas tax, California gas taxes are ranked the second highest in the nation by the American Petroleum Institute.

WHEREAS: The proposal fails to address 500 million dollars in reported waste at CalTrans.

BE IT RESOLVED: High gas prices are already hurting working people and putting jobs in jeopardy. Californians need greater access to affordable fuel, not billions in new gas taxes!
