Here’s why I’m NO on Prop 6:
- Prop 6 would take an existing power away from the legislature to do what they do… impose fees and levy taxes to pay for stuff. In this case, each time the legislature would want to impose a new fee or tax on vehicles voters would have to approve it. Hogwash, that’s why we elect a legislature.
- Generally speaking, I’m in favor of levying taxes that match behavior. California needs a mechanism to improve infrastructure for vehicles, tax gas and raise registration fees. Makes sense to me.
- Paying more gas tax encourages drivers to buy more fuel efficient vehicles.
