Vidak: Gas tax hike is a scam

Thursday, April 6, 2017

Sacramento – The California State Senate tonight approved a massive gas tax hike and vehicle fee increase measure on a 27 - 11 vote.

“California is already spending $419,000 per mile on road construction as opposed to Texas at $177,000, and California has wasted $3.5 billion on less than one mile of High Speed Rail track,” said Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford).  “Jacking up gas taxes and registration fees will harm the working poor, unemployed, and struggling middle class families in the Central Valley and frankly it’s just throwing good money after bad.  This is a scam.”
