Repeal the Gas Tax
An effort is underway to repeal California’s gas tax hike via the ballot box. SB-1, passed by the Democrat-controlled legislature and signed by Governor Brown, will raise the gas tax by 67 percent starting November 1, 2017. This is the largest gas tax increase in California’s history and in addition, the bill raises diesel prices and vehicle registration fees.
Assemblyman Travis Allen (R-Huntington Beach) has filed paperwork to qualify an initiative on the November 2018 ballot. When approved by the Secretary of State, over 365,000 petition signatures will be required to qualify the initiative.
Travis Allen will speak about this Repeal the Gas Tax Initiative at the Issues and Ideas (I Squared) event on Tuesday, July 25, 2017 starting at 5:30 pm at the Nevada County Association of Realtors Esterly Hall, 336 Crown Point Cir. Admission is $5 payable at the door. Complimentary light refreshments will be available. This event is sponsored by the Nevada County Republican Party.
Travis Allen has also announced his candidacy for CA Governor.
