Assemblyman Kevin Kiley Introduces Legislation to Fully Suspend the State Gas Tax

Press Release

by ECT

SACRAMENTO, CA – Today Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) introduced Assembly Bill 1638, an urgency measure that would immediately suspend the entire state excise tax on gasoline for a period of six months. This would save Californians over 50 cents per gallon at the pump.

“This bill puts money back into the pockets of families at a time when they need it most,” Assemblyman Kiley said. “Inflation and record gas prices are making our state even less affordable. Californians need relief.”

AB 1638 would provide immediate relief to Californians who are paying the nation’s highest gas prices. By comparison, a proposal brought forward by the Newsom Administration earlier this week would only pause a small increase ($0.03) on the gas tax set to take effect in July, but would do nothing to reduce the current cost of a gallon of gas.

Assemblyman Kevin Kiley represents the 6th Assembly District, which includes the Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado County communities of Cameron Park, El Dorado Hills, Fair Oaks, Folsom, Granite Bay, Lincoln, Loomis, Orangevale, Penryn, Rocklin, Roseville, and Sheridan.

All hot air. It will never happen. When have you ever known the government to take less money on anything?

Now we’re talking. Newsom wants to spend like a drunken sailor on everybody except us taxpayers, this is a way for the working folks to get relief. I say eliminate till Newsom comes to his senses and we all know that is just not going to happen.

Reading on Twitter how people have died from Universal Healthcare because too long to get assistance so they go to another country for medical help. If Gavin’s plan works line CA EDD and no one can get help, not a good idea. What has Gavin done for CA?

This will never gain any traction for the simple reason that Assemblyman Kiley is a Republican… the Democratic majority in power, even if they agree with the notion privately, will not get behind a Republican sponsored bill.

What I want to know is, what happened to the requirement for returning surplus to the tax payers under the Gann Government spending limit law, that became a California Constitution amendment (Article XIII B)?

That spending limit law was meant to protect taxpayers from the very thing that’s occurring in Sacramento with Newsom spending OUR money like there’s no tomorrow.
