Vote sends clear message that Democrats are OK w/ record-breaking gas prices.

SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher (Yuba City) issued the following statement on the Assembly Transportation Committee’s vote to block Republican’s proposal for a gas tax holiday and increase gas taxes even higher: 

“Only Assembly Democrats would think you can bring down gas prices by increasing the gas tax. Today’s stunt in the Transportation Committee shows just how far Democrats will go to delay and avoid giving Californians any relief from high gas prices. Californians are hurting now, and Democrats’ charade will only extend the pain.”
