Special Guest Speaker– Bob Huff
former Senate Republican Leader Addresses the California Gas Tax Repeal
Former Senator Bob Huff will address the California Repeal Gas Tax and Fees Increase Bill Initiative (2018). This Initiative would repeal most sections of Senate Bill 1, the largest gas tax increase in California’s history without voter approval. Its repeal would allow California voters to decide for themselves if they want to raise their taxes and control how the funds are to be spent.
