Majority of Public Opposes New Gas Tax – Impact on Recording Fee Increase?

Despite the Governor’s successful drive to pass a gas tax increase, the public is opposed. A recent Sacramento Bee poll found that more than half of California voters opposed the new 10-year program to raise more than $52 billion for transportation project. The new taxes include a new 12 cent a gallon gas tax and increase in diesel fuel taxes and vehicle registration fees. The issue is now whether the Legislature will support the Senate Bill 2 (Atkins) recording fee increase to fund affordable housing, because it could be seen by the public as another tax increase. So, get ready for the new gas tax in November, but don’t expect anyone to pull the plug on the Bullet Train just yet.
