SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher issued the following statement on Assembly Democrats’ gas tax rebate proposal: 

“It’s about time. Californians are hurting and it’s taken Democrats weeks to act. 

“This bill should be fast-tracked to the Governor’s desk and targeted to working Californians who actually feel the pain at the pump. 

“While this is a start, Republicans will still work to suspend the gas tax and stop the upcoming increase. With inflation at a 40-year high and gas prices breaking records, $400 will go pretty fast.”
