User fee: gasoline and diesel fuel.

Abstract

Existing law imposes a levy of $0.18 per gallon on motor vehicle fuel, commonly referred to as gasoline, and on diesel fuel. Under Article XIX of the California Constitution, the portion of these revenues that is derived from use in motor vehicles upon public streets and highways is restricted for expenditure on street and highway and certain mass transit guideway purposes. This bill would, commencing April 1, 2009, impose a user fee of $0.39 per gallon on gasoline and $0.31 per gallon on diesel fuel. The bill would require the State Board of Equalization to adjust the amount of the fee every 3 years consistent with the California Consumer Price Index. The bill would require revenues from the fee to be distributed pursuant to specified formulas. The bill would require the State Board of Equalization to administer the user fees in the same manner as the existing $0.18 per gallon levies. Revenues from the fee would be required to be used solely for purposes consistent with the requirements under law for a user fee of this nature. The bill would continuously appropriate the fee revenues deposited in the Motor Vehicle Fuel Account, and would continuously appropriate the portion of fee revenues designated for apportionment by the Controller to cities and counties, as specified, thereby making an appropriation. The bill would enact other related provisions. The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. The Governor issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on December 1, 2008. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared by the Governor by proclamation issued on December 1, 2008, pursuant to the California Constitution.
