The initiative will not only give the voters the chance to put more money back into their pockets, but will amend the CA constitution to disallow Sacramento from placing any future gas and car taxes on California’s citizens without a citizen vote.  You will hear a lot of negative press indicating the loss of money for our roads, but we know the money was already pegged for anything but the roads and is really going to Jerry’s Brown’s speed train to nowhere.
