Senator Morrell Responds to Governor's Signing of Gas Tax

Friday, April 28, 2017

SACRAMENTO - Senator Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) issued the following statement after Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the largest gas tax increase in state history:

"Californians know they already pay enough for core government services and programs, including our roads and highways. What they rightfully expect is that the state will better prioritize its spending and get its finances in order. Instead, under one-party rule by Democrats in Sacramento, taxpayers are fleeced again, finding themselves having to pay more for government that delivers less."

Morrell recently authored an op-ed on SB 1 and the impact of the gas tax on California drivers. It was published in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, the San Bernardino Sun, and the Redlands Daily Facts. The article can be found here.
