$52B Needed to Fix California Roads, Taxes and Fees Proposed - because they raided the piggy bank for other reasons, Illegals?

 

California's governor and legislative leaders want to raise $52 billion to fix roads through a big increase in the gas tax.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California's governor and legislative leaders on Wednesday proposed raising $52 billion to fix the state's roads through a big gasoline tax increase, higher car registration fees and a charge on emission-free vehicles.

The 10-year plan would boost gasoline excise taxes for the first time in more than two decades, raising them 12 cents per gallon — a 43 percent increase. The tax would rise automatically with inflation.

For the first time, owners of zero emission vehicles would pay a $100 annual fee because they use public roads but don't pay gasoline taxes that fund highway maintenance.

The plan also includes a sliding fee on vehicles, with owners of cheaper vehicles paying less. The fee, separate from annual vehicle registration fees, would range from $25 a year for vehicles worth less than $5,000 to $175 for cars worth $60,000 and up.

Gov. Jerry Brown said the plan would cost most drivers less than $10 per month and would be offset by reduced vehicle-repair expenses. The governor and Democratic legislative leaders hope to rush it through the Legislature next week.

Critics have long complained that money raised by transportation taxes has been siphoned off for other uses, something the constitutional amendment is designed to prevent.

Ten dollars a month is a lot of money for some people, Jerry.

Notice they plan to rush it through so no opposition can build to prevent it. :scream1:

What I would like to know, what did you spend the money on, Jerry, Hmm, maybe programs for illegals.

Or, are you raising taxes now in the event Trumps cuts your money off, getting ready to fight at the tax payers expense?

It's not my money, I don't care, right Jerry.

Seems to be the idea of the agenda 21 crowd.

Slowly pushing us peasants, out of our cars and our homes.

@schon @Cinnamon @abigfatzero Move to the south! Abundant water, warm weather, and if you move to Florida no state income tax! Besides once this gets pushed through (you know it will) it will trigger a mass exodus biblical like. To the point that the only ones left will be illegals and Hollywood idiots.

The only way to win this is to bring it down financially. Once enough people and companies move California won't have as much clout. I see Texas and Florida becoming the most populous states soon after this passes.
