SMARTrecommends: YES on 6


Proposition 6 repeals the recently-enacted SB1 increased gas tax and DMV fees that the legislature passed without a vote of CA citizens.

The tax is costing Moragans at least $2.4MM/year in return for just $250k being sent to the town.

A recent town newsletter bemoaned the potential loss of $250k/year making it seem like a longstanding funding source for roads would disappear. However, Moraga has received funding just once.

What they also failed to mention in the newsletter - and failed to consider when endorsing this tax - was the significant cost to Moraga households and families in return for a little graft of "free money" from Sacramento.

We strongly recommend YES on Prop 6.
