SACRAMENTO, CA – Today Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) released the following statement following the Legislature voting down AB 1638 (Kiley) to suspend the gas tax and provide immediate relief to working families in California:
"Today the Republican and Independent Members of the Assembly voted to save Californians 51 cents per gallon by suspending the gas tax. In addition, 18 members abstained from the vote. Unfortunately, the Supermajority rounded up enough votes to deny struggling Californians this modest measure of relief.
“Our state’s political leadership has never been so out of touch.”
