Senate Republican Leader Fuller Issues Statement on Massive Tax Hike in the Golden State

Thursday, April 6, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Senate Republican Leader Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield) released this statement following the passage of Senate Bill 1, the largest gas tax hike in California’s history. Senate Bill 1 passed, 27-11.

“It is deeply disappointing that legislative Democrats chose to punish Californians with tax increases after neglecting our roads for years. This out of touch plan will particularly hurt Californians struggling to make ends meet and give us all less than we deserve.

Senator Fuller signed on as a co-author to Assembly Bill 496, introduced by Assemblyman Vince Fong (R-Kern County), vice chair of the Transportation Committee.

“It didn’t have to be this way. Assemblyman Fong’s transportation bill was a better solution to fix our roads and bridges without raising a penny of new taxes,” concluded Senator Fuller.
