Prop 6 - What is it about?

Proposition 6 is one of the most well known and controversial items on the November ballot.

Last year California lawmakers passed a tax spiking the price of gasoline $0.12 cents a gallon and between $25 and $275 dollars a year for registration. 

That money is going toward more road construction and repairs many of which are already underway and marked by the SB1 symbol.

The widening of I-5 is one of the road improvement projects and is expected to start next year.

Two-thirds of the legislature passed the tax but it was never up for a public vote until now.

Proposition 6 would not only repeal those taxes but would also ban the state from ever increasing a tax on gas or on registration without being put to a vote in California.

Even though passing the proposition would lower gas prices and registration fees instantly... It would also mean that the state of California would lose 5 billion dollars for road repairs it's counting on.

What does my vote mean?

YES: will instantly repeal the 12 cent gas tax and price hikes in registration.

NO: the law stands and money from the gas and registration hike will go to fixing infrastructure.
