Governor Jerry Brown and the Democrat-controlled legislature passed a bill this year raising the gasoline tax and vehicle registration fees in California.
They claim that the money generated will go towards road maintenance. This flys in the face that we've had tax money taken for this purpose but the money was diverted to their liberal social programs.
I just received my registration renewal notices in the mail for The Beast (the 2015 Winnebago 22R) and the 1989 Mustang. The Mustang's registration jumped up to $129 and the registration for The Beast went up to $517.
Thankfully, both are due during the latter part of February and I should be completely moved out of California at the beginning of February.
If people wonder why so many people are leaving California, this is a good reason.
