SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblyman Jones (R-Santee), in his latest “Are You Kidding Me?” segment, denounces a recent bill signed by Governor Brown, calling on the California Transportation Commission to study options for imposing a new tax on motorists per each mile traveled. According to the Department of Finance, this study could cost taxpayers up to $20 million. Assemblyman Jones says, “This will have a devastating effect if it goes any further than just a study – people will travel less, contribute to our local economy less, but the taxpayers will pay more. What’s more, people will be forced to move into urban areas, once again disenfranchising California’s rural residents.”
