Last year, the legislature increased taxes and fees on gasoline and certain vehicles to help maintain our crumbling roads, bridges, and highways. They were smart about it, emphasizing maintaining what we have, and including biking and walking infrastructure to the tune of $100 million per year.
Anti-tax activists have gotten Proposition 6 placed on the November ballot. Prop 6 will eliminate this critical funding and the transportation projects it supports, making it much harder to make our streets safe for biking and walking.
We need your help to fight the repeal. And for the month of August, your donation will be doubled. Our friends at Cohen Law Partners have pledged a $10,000 match for safer streets.
