Howard Jarvis Group Collects 150% Signatures for Gas Tax Repeal

by CHRISS W. STREET

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers’ Association (HJTA), which has led California’s “Reject The Gas Tax” ballot initiative, delivered 940,000 signatures to Sacramento Tuesday, far above the required 585,407 valid signatures necessary to qualify the gas tax repeal for the November 2018 ballot.

HJTA has been arguing that the Democrat-controlled California legislature’s “Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017” (SB 1), which raised gas taxes by 12 cents per gallon while also raising vehicle registration fees, is a $52 billion boondoggle.

Gas tax advocates have been silent on the pain inflicted on California middle-income and lower-income working-class families. The average California family of four will pay about $300 more in gas taxes this year, about $400 more in 2019, and another $50 more each year thereafter.
