Right on Cue!

Also, vehicle registration fee hikes Shocked

Get ready to be bent over some more Patrick Grin  Shocked

Quote:
SACRAMENTO (CBSLA.com/AP) — California lawmakers on Thursday approved a $5-billion-a-year plan to boost California’s gas and vehicle taxes to pay for major road repairs, handing a victory to Gov. Jerry Brown who has lobbied for years for money to fix crumbling highways and bridges.

Brown and top Democratic lawmakers overcame strong opposition from environmentalists and anti-tax crusaders to muster the two-thirds support required to raise taxes.

“You know how bad our roads are, and the conditions have been made worse by our recent winter weather,” said Sen. Jim Beall, a San Jose Democrat who worked on the bill for two years.

Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair & Accountability Act of 2017, would trigger a 20-cent per gallon increase in diesel taxes, a 12-cent per gallon hike in gas taxes and a 5.75 percent increase in diesel sales taxes. Vehicle license fees would be raised an average $38 per vehicle. Drivers would also face a new annual fee to be paid with their vehicle registration, ranging from $25 to $175 depending on the value of their vehicle. The taxes and fees would rise each year with inflation.

Yep, Government only grows and takes your freedoms away. That's why it's important to have a strong citizenry instead of a weak one.

I also thought that legalizing Marijuana was the answer to California's fiscal woes Huh Roll Eyes

Heck, at my age they should be free!  To be honest, though, the roads down here are ghastly.  We're probably 57th (Obama counting) in the nation regarding that.

Maybe you can petition Trump for some Fed aid? Cheesy

He's giving Fed money to help my state for roads and infrastructure issues after the winter we had(Idaho). Where is the money going to come from?

He's as bad as Obama? Huh

You poor soul

It's all in the name of the children remember? More like all in the name of educators , Teachers and teacher unions...

Someday, our education needle will move from 25th in the world to 24th.
