HALT THE

GAS TAX

SIGN THE PETITION.

SUPPORT ASSEMBLYWOMAN SUZETTE VALLADARES’

EFFORT TO LOWER GAS PRICES.

Assemblymember Suzette Valladares leads a bipartisan effort to lower gas prices for Californians

While the state of California is awash in a $68 billion surplus—funded by our taxes—average Californians are struggling to buy the basics. That’s why Assemblymember Suzette Valladares has been leading an effort to convince the State Legislature to suspend California’s gas tax and ease the pain at the pump.  
 
Along with her Democrat and Republican colleagues in the Problem Solvers Caucus, Valladares authored thefirst bi-partisan proposal to suspend the gas tax for 12 months.
This proposal will reduce the cost of gas at the pump by 54 cents a gallon, and preserve funding for transportation projects by using part of California’s $68 Billion surplus.  

While California’s Savings Account is overflowing with cash, California’s families are hurting.  

In June, Assemblymember Valladares once again led a bi-partisan group of legislators to send a letter to President Biden urging him to suspend the federal gas tax. Valladares wrote to Biden, “We fully recognize that suspending the federal gas tax is not a silver bullet, but in combination with many of the other ways California is pursuing relief.” 

In addition to the suspension of the state and federal gas taxes, the bipartisan group is advocating for increasing domestic oil production and imposing a moratorium on summer gasoline blend requirements to help reduce prices at the pump.

And in light of California’s huge budget surplus, they are pushing for direct rebate payments to struggling California residents who have been grappling with record inflation, shortages of baby formula, and the highest gasoline prices in the country.

Californians deserve a break.
