Assembly Kevin Kiley Responds to the Supermajority’s Decision to Increase Gas Taxes on Hardworking California Families
SACRAMENTO, CA – Today Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) issued the following statement following reports that the Legislature won’t act in time to stop the scheduled gas tax increase set to take effect on July 1, 2022:
“After rejecting my bill to suspend the 50 cent per gallon gas tax on four occasions, the Supermajority is now increasing the tax burden on hardworking California families by failing to take action to provide relief. Even Governor Newsom opposes this.
“When fuel prices rise again in July, drivers can thank the out of touch politicians in Sacramento who put politics over bipartisan solutions to help all Californians.”
Assemblyman Kevin Kiley represents the 6th Assembly District, which includes the Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado County communities of Cameron Park, El Dorado Hills, Fair Oaks, Folsom, Granite Bay, Lincoln, Loomis, Orangevale, Penryn, Rocklin, Roseville, and Sheridan.
