Assemblymember Weber Statement on Gas Tax Vote


SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Dr. Akilah Weber (D-San Diego) issued the following statement:

“Today, my colleague Assemblymember Kevin Kiley (R-AD6) brought forward a proposal during the Assembly floor session that was without reference to file. This means this item was not on the agenda, it has not been heard in any committees, and most importantly, was not something that I had been given the opportunity to read. The pain at the pump is real and is hurting every Californian, including my own family.  I am eager and committed to finding ways to alleviate this pain and look forward to working with Governor Newsom and my legislative colleagues on a plan to get cash back into your pockets. However, I also want my constituents to know that I do not vote in favor of bills that show up on the floor that I, nor my staff, have never seen nor read.”
