of SB 1 GAS TAX Dollars to build toll lanes=
DOUBLE TAXATION & WRONG!!
Assemblyman Jay Obernolte states
for the November 2018 Ballot
CA) – Recently, Assemblyman Jay Obernolte issued the following statement on the
qualification of the initiative to repeal the SB 1 GAS and CAR TAXES INCREASES for
the November 2018 ballot:
“The SB 1 gas and car taxes are unfair and unnecessary.
For years Sacramento politicians have diverted billions of dollars away from
roads. Instead of dedicating those funds to their intended purpose, and despite
the fact California has an $9 billion dollar budget surplus, they passed a
regressive tax that makes our state even more unaffordable then it already is.
Adding insult to injury, the funds from the SB 1 gas and car tax increases are being used for toll lanes, bike lanes and rail lines.
Spending millions of SB 1 gas tax
dollars to build toll lanes is double taxation and wrong. This tax needs to be
repealed and the legislature needs to use our existing surplus to fix our roads
instead of burdening Californians with more taxes.”
