Gallagher Statement on Gavin’s Gas Tax

SACRAMENTO – Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher issued the following statement on reports that Gov. Gavin Newsom is updating his gas tax proposal to put unelected bureaucrats in charge of imposing the added costs: 


“No matter how many sham investigations he calls for, no matter what kind of ‘penalty’ he comes up with, there is one indisputable fact – California drivers pay more than they should because of the taxes, fees and regulations imposed by Governor Newsom and his extreme liberal allies. If Democrats give unelected bureaucrats the authority to impose this new tax, they will be responsible for the shortages, rationing, gas lines and price spikes that come with it.”
