OFFICIAL TITLE AND SUMMARY
PREPARED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
- Repeals a 2017 transportation law's tax and fee
provisions that pay for repairs and improvements
to local roads, state highways, and public
- Requires the Legislature to submit any measure
enacting specified taxes or fees on gas or diesel
fuel, or on the privilege to operate a vehicle on
public highways, to the electorate for approval.
SUMMARY OF LEGISLATIVE ANALYST'S ESTIMATE OF NET STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT FISCAL IMPACT:
- Reduced ongoing state revenues of $5.1 billion
from the elimination of fuel and vehicle taxes
passed by the Legislature in 2017. These
revenues mainly would have paid for highway
and road maintenance and repairs, as well as
- The requirement that voters approve new or
increased fuel and vehicle taxes passed by the
Legislature in the future could result in lower
revenues from such taxes than otherwise would
have been available.
