California Assembly to Vote on Pilot Program to Tax Cars for Miles Traveled

Legislation (S.B. 1077) to establish a Mileage-Based Fee (MBF) Task Force and require the task force to study vehicle mileage user fees will soon be considered by the California Assembly.   Under the bill, the group would propose MBF as an alternative to the gas tax and make recommendations to the commission on the design of a pilot program.  If passed by the Assembly, the bill would require Senate concurrence.

We Urge You to Contact All California Assembly Members (List Below) Immediately To Voice Your Opinion on S.B. 1077  

  • According to supporters, a mileage-based fee program has the potential to distribute the gas tax burden across all vehicles regardless of fuel source and to minimize the impact of the current regressive gas tax structure.
     
  • According to opponents, the bill seeks to penalize national efforts to create a more fuel efficient vehicle fleet by taxing drivers based on vehicle mileage.  As gas tax revenues decrease due to hybrid and electric vehicle ownership, states are looking for new sources of funding for pet projects.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact members of the California Assembly immediately to voice your opinion on S.B. 1077.
