Gallagher Slams Legislative Democrats for Backing Gavin’s Gas Tax

SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher (Yuba City) issued the following statement condemning Gov. Gavin Newsom’s deal with Democratic lawmakers to give unelected bureaucrats the authority to impose new gas taxes with no accountability: 

“If Democrats are going to push a new gas tax, they should at least have the courage to vote on it directly. No matter how they try to escape the consequences of this bill, Californians will hold Democrats responsible for the fuel shortages, rationing, gas lines and price spikes that will result.”
