Californians are going to be paying more at the pump starting November 1, thanks to SB 1 sponsor Assemblyman Frazier and his fellow Democrats who passed this $5.2 billion annual tax increase. This amount is over and above the current transportation tax, whose funds have been raided on a regular basis to back-fill a General Fund deficit during the recession. The Legislature also diverts $60 million from the State Highway Account and $80 million from the Motor Vehicle Account every year to support the General Fund! All you have to do is drive on our highways to know the funds are not being used for maintenance or increased capacity.
Sacramento voters are not pleased that all of our Democrat state legislators voted for this bill. Those include:
Assemblyman Jim Frazier (D-AD11)
Assemblyman Jim Cooper (D-AD 9)
Assemblyman Ken Cooley (D-AD 8)
Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D-AD 7)
Senator Bill Dodd (D-SD 3)
Senator Cathleen Galgiani (D-SD 5)
Senator Richard Pan (D-SD 6)
Thanks to those who opposed SB 1!
Senator Ted Gaines (R-SD 1)
Senator Jim Nielsen (R-SD 4)
Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-AD 6)

Here’s the latest!
Assemblyman Travis Allen submitted his ballot measure to repeal SB 1 and had to go to court to fight for a fair title and summary. Sacramento Superior Court Judge Timothy M. Frawley agreed that Attorney General Becerra’s version was “fundamentally flawed” and that he couldn’t count on him to write it fairly.
So the judge wrote it himself!
Of course, now the Attorney General is appealing the Superior Court decision. Stay tuned!

We expect both measures will have petitions ready to circulate the last week in November. SCRP will let you know when they are ready to go!
