Newsom proposes $11B relief package for Californians grappling with high gas prices
As Californians continue to contend with the highest gas prices in the country, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) proposed an $11 billion package on Wednesday aimed at providing residents with significant relief.

“We’re taking immediate action to get money directly into the pockets of Californians who are facing higher gas prices as a direct result of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s invasion of Ukraine,” Newsom said in a statement, noting the package aims to protect residents from volatile gas prices.
The governor’s proposal calls for $9 billion in tax refunds to Californians in the form of $400 direct payments per vehicle, limited to two vehicles, the news release from the governor’s office said. The package also includes an additional $2 billion in broader relief mechanisms.

Has Newsome ever seen a handout he didn't like? Meanwhile the homeless camps, addicts and mental patients are exploding.

You think normal people want to ride the bus even if it's free? LOL - who wants to ride in a sloshing toilet?

The funny part of this is that gas prices in California are consistently the highest in the nation and that is due to the laws passed by California's state government. With a large part of that being the taxes placed on gas.

And now that many people in California are suffering from those laws and taxes, the state government is going to take more tax money from a citizens to pay back the people it has been taxing.

Did anyone really think this is good government.

How about ending the gas tax for a while? Oh wait...that's too easy and makes too much sense. Can't have that!

Maryland is the first state to have already done that. Other states are considering it.
