|Legislature Might Pass Massive Car Tax Increase|
Act Now! See below
August 30, 2012Dear George,
BREAKING NEWS FROM THE FLASHREPORT!
Democrats, using the "gut and amend" process where they drop things into legislation at the last minute, are seeking to take car taxes due to sunset in 2015 and extend them until 2023 -- at a cost to car owners of billions of dollars. The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association has made defeating this bill a top priority.
We urge you to watch a short, informative video from FlashReport.org publisher Jon Fleischman by clicking the link below, and contact your state legislators and urge them to oppose SB 1455, the massive extension of car taxes set to expire in 2015.URGENT "VOTER ALERT" VIDEO - STOP SB 1455
Howard Jarvis Needs Our Help!
Immediate Action Requested!
ACTION NEEDED: Contact members of the California State Assembly and State Senate and tell them to vote NO on SB 1455, a $2 billion tax extension against vehicle owners to fund infrastructure projects related to hydrogen fuel stations that most people will likely never use.
WHEN TO TAKE ACTION: Now. This bill will come up on the Assembly and Senate Floor for votes before Friday night. The bill has been keyed as a two-thirds vote and represents a major tax extension.
WHY: SB 1455 will result in an extension of vehicle registration, smog abatement, tire fees, etc. imposed on taxpayers for an addition nine years, until the end of 2023. This is what is commonly referred to as a “gut-and-amend” maneuver. This tax increase only materialized this week and has received only one policy hearing. Further, the regulatory relief can be altered in the future by a majority vote, while this tax extension against vehicle owners will last another decade.
Contact the following legislators and urge them to vote NO on SB 1455.

Assemblywoman Alyson Huber (Dem—District 10)
