OUTRAGE! California Gas Tax Passes After Republican Lawmaker Wins $500 Million Promise

500 MILLION..FOR HIS VOTE! WHILE THEY EXTRACT 52 BILLION FROM CALIFORNIA’S TAXPAYERS.

In return he won a promise of $400 million for a railroad extension into his Central Valley district in California’s agricultural heartland and a $100 million parkway project for the University of California, Merced.

Another $427 million will go to the overlapping districts represented by Sen. Richard Roth of Riverside and Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes of Corona, both Democrats. In a joint statement they claimed credit for delivering “Riverside County’s fair share” to their constituents.

The deal negotiated by Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative leaders passed without a vote to spare and will raise gas taxes by 43 percent, or 12 cents a gallon, while also increasing diesel taxes. The hikes take effect Nov. 1.

The plan aims to raise $54.2 billion for road and bridge repairs, mass transit and other projects over 10 years.
