Marie Waldron, State Assemblymember — California is projected to bring in $97.5 billion more tax revenue than expected.
But just today, the legislature failed to pass AB 2457, a bill I co-sponsored with my colleagues in the bipartisan California Problem Solvers Caucus to suspend the gas tax for a year and guarantee all the savings go directly to drivers. With such a large surplus, there is no reason to reject bipartisan proposals by the Problem Solvers Caucus.
Instead, we have a gas tax increase set to take effect in July.
Gasoline costs are rising to unbelievable levels, with new records set almost every day. Hardworking Californians are struggling to make ends meet, especially in my rural district, where many hit the freeways for long commutes to work. Immediate relief is available, but Sacramento politicians continue to stand in the way.
Sincerely, Marie Waldron
