Legislative Alert • August 2014

Stop California's Hidden Tax On Fuel!
by Assemblyman Brian Nestande • Submitted by Rex Roden, President, ACCC

Gas is more than just fuel for our cars; it is fuel for our quality of life. Affordable energy promotes job creation, encourages low prices for consumer goods, and keeps more money in our wallets. Yet Sacramento bureaucrats think California drivers should pay more for gas.

Gas PriciesOn January 1, 2015, drivers will have to pay a hidden tax that could cause gas prices to go up as much as 70 cents according to some estimates. This tax comes from the California Air Resources Board, which has expanded the state's cap-and-trade program to include gasoline and diesel. California drivers already pay more than enough for gas. According to GasBuddy.com, we pay the third-highest gas prices in the nation at more than at $4.13 per gallon.

As part of that price, we pay the nation's highest gas tax at nearly 72 cents per gallon. By any standard, we are paying more than enough to fill up our cars to go to work or drop the kids off at school. That is why both Democratic and Republican legislators have urged Governor Brown to delay the inclusion of gasoline and diesel into the cap-and-trade program.

In a letter that I co-signed with my Assembly colleagues, we asked the governor to use his executive authority to delay the new rule, which would prevent the hidden gas tax from taking effect on January 1. We call this tax "hidden" because it is not directly imposed on consumers. Rather, oil suppliers must pay the tax, whose higher costs will surely be passed on to consumers at the pump.

Furthermore, this tax was never debated in the Legislature and Californians were never told about it beforehand. In fact, when asked, an Air Resources Board spokesperson claimed it was not a tax. They can call it whatever they want, but mandating a new bureaucratic rule that will make gas more expensive sounds like a tax to most drivers.

Most Californians — especially Inland Empire residents — cannot get far without a car. In many areas, public transportation is not a viable option, and it will not be for the foreseeable future. Sadly, the ones who will be most hurt by higher gas prices will be residents with low and middle-class incomes. Since fuel taxes are regressive, these Californians will be forced to deal with a huge increase even though they already dedicate much of their household budget to transportation.

Given their limited income, they also cannot afford gas-saving hybrid cars that supporters of the hidden tax like to drive around Sacramento. Even those who do not drive will be affected by the hidden tax because making energy more expensive will have a ripple effect throughout the state. Everyone will have to pay more for the products we buy since most are transported by trucks. Simply put, higher gas prices also means higher prices at most stores. Californians deserve better than yet another tax increase that will make living here even more expensive. I hope the governor agrees and acts as quickly as possible. Otherwise, we should brace ourselves for the prospect of paying $5 per gallon of gas in 2015.

I encourage anyone concerned about gas prices to contact Governor Brown at 916-445-2841 or click on link https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php to tell him you oppose the new hidden tax on fuel. Assemblyman Brian Nestande (R-Palm Desert) is a member of the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee and represents the 42nd Assembly District in the California Legislature.

Legislative Alert • 23 May 2014

Contact your assembly member on SB1242 concerning Bureau of Automotive Repair. Recommend a NO vote.

Assembly Member Brian Dahle
Capitol Office • P.O. Box 942849, Room 2174, Sacramento, CA 94249-0001 • PHONE (916) 319-2001

SB1242 as introduced by Senator Lieu and co-author Assembly Member Bonilla.

Current law requires the Department of Consumer Affairs, Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) to come before the Joint Committee on Boards, Commissions, and Consumer Protection (Committee). BAR "...has the burden of demonstrating a compelling public need for the continued existence of the bureau and its regulatory program."

The Committee then evaluates and reviews what BAR has presented and is then required to report its recommendations and whether BAR continues in existence or not.

This bill would remove the review by the Committee, and allow any reviews to be made by "appropriate policy committees" which waters down the oversight duty of the Committee.

What this does is allows BAR to cut to pieces any review in that everything is segmented and broken up so no one oversight committee is allowed to see everything that BAR does.

Legislative Update January 2014

On February 11, 2013, Assembly Member Quirk introduced AB 284. This will add sections to the Public Resources Code, in particular § 71090 and § 71091. It uses the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 as a jumping off point to require our friends at CARB to convene the Road to 2050 Advisory Board.

There will be important members on this Board to report to the Governor and the Legislature on the impacts to California of global warming. The report will include sections on water supply, public health, agriculture, coastline, and forestry. Here comes the fun part; "and to prepare and report on mitigation and adaptation plans to combat these impacts".

In legislative language, "mitigation" is defined as TAXES; "adaptation" is defined as turning your pre-1972 vehicle in for a bus pass because they couldn't get ride of it through "Smog Check as a Treatment for Older Vehicles" (May 2009).

But fear not, this report will only be used on an "…advisory basis, to guide key infrastructure decision making processes and policies at the local and statewide level." And still don't fear because the members of this board are on our side.

The bill says so: "To ensure that the interests of the people of California are served, the Chair of the State Air Resources Board shall convene the Road to 2050 Board consisting of all of the following: (a) The Secretary of the Business Consumer Services. (b) The Secretary of Food and Agriculture. (c) The Secretary of the Natural Resources Agency. (d) The Secretary of Transportation. (e) The Chair of the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission. (f) The President of the Public Utilities Commission".

Before the edit of this bill, the "Secretary" of these agencies were listed as "high level representatives".

Now who wouldn't trust this bunch? And they want to "ensure" our interests, how special.

This friendly Commission is tasked with reducing our greenhouse emissions to an 80% level of 1990 levels. That is good. However, we are almost there, now, without the assist from a group of pencil-necked, bureaucratic, stiffs in suits.

Here is where it gets just a bit sticky in that the "report" will contain sections on "…(5) Methods to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from homes, farms, and industrial and commercial structures. (6) Reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases from sources of transportation, then to date.".

In legislative language, "transportation" is defined as your car, so start looking for a good deal on bus passes.

In legislative language, "farms" and the contribution to greenhouse gases is defined as the methane gas released from livestock. No kidding, they already have charts to determine how much is exhausted from each type of livestock. This is contained in the 1,100 pages of CARB's "Scoping Plan", so it is all ready to implement.

In legislative language, "homes" is defined as your castle.
OR: You can get active and keep in touch with your state legislator and ask them to stop the madness.

Not knowing Assembly Member Quirk, it must be concluded that he too, has too much time on his hands.

Oh, AB 284 is 1,320 words. It was amended, which in essence crossed out the first 50% of the bill and replaced it with different wording, however so slight. That is just good darn work. Or in the words of a great diplomat, PEANUT, a character used by ventriloquist Jeff Dunham, "Dumb Ass".

Legislation Update - October 2013

SB 549 Introduced by Senator Galgiani on 22 February 2013, which is now described as "An act to add Section 43018.3 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to vehicular air pollution."

LEGISLATIVE BRIEF:
SB 549, as amended, Galgiani. Vehicular air pollution: exemption: low-use vehicles.

Existing law imposes various limitations on emissions of air contaminants for the control of air pollution from vehicular and non-vehicular sources. Existing law generally designates the State Air Resources Board as the state agency with the primary responsibility for the control of vehicular air pollution. Existing law requires the state board to adopt and implement motor vehicle emission standards, in-use performance standards, and motor vehicle fuel specifications for the control of air contaminants, including standards for off-road and non-vehicle engine categories.

This bill would require the state board to amend a specified regulation that, among other things, exempts low-use vehicles, as defined, from prescribed mobile source emissions reductions, to include a vehicle operated fewer than 2,000 miles in California in any compliance year as a low-use vehicle.

A COMMENT ON THIS STATUTE:
Funny thing though, the "original" SB 549 started life dealing with state property inventory procedures. The entire language of the original bill was lined out and the 2,000 mile definition for low use vehicles was inserted.

But it directs CARB ("State Air Resources Board") to amend a specified regulation to include the 2,000 mile wording.

Do you really want that kind of detail and minutia to run our lives and our cars?

This is how government operates; start the legislative process, pay for the original bill to be printed and entered into the system, then gut it and put something else in its place.

The sad part is that it is all aimed at our cars.

Travel Safe, Greg M.


Here is a recap of the three bills that Greg M. discussed at the General Meeting in September 2013.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

The CA legislature is taking the lead out of our ammunition (AB 711), will go to their crystal ball and determine what the requirements for transportation will be in the future (AB 1191), and will have us running low carbon fuel in our vehicles (AB 278) without putting a crimp on our food supply.

HERE IT IS:
AB 278 – Low Carbon Fuel Standard.

Last action on 09/04/2013 – from the Assembly, a bill will go to the Senate to complete the "Two House" system of reviews and revisions. This bill was ordered to inactive file at the request of Senator De León.

Introduced by Assembly Member Gatto & Principal coauthor: Assembly Member Quirk AB 278 is a continuing effort of the legislature to eliminate petroleum fueled vehicles in California under the guise of the California Global Warming

Solutions Act of 2006:

The California State Air Resources Board (CARB) IS the state agency responsible for monitoring and regulating sources emitting greenhouse gases. The act requires the state board to adopt a statewide greenhouse gas emissions limit, as defined, to be achieved by 2020, equivalent to the statewide greenhouse gas emissions levels in 1990.

CARB already has adopted the Low Carbon Fuel Standard regulations.

AB278 requires the state board, in promulgating regulations or other policies for purposes of the carbon intensity of fuels, to consider specified sustainability factors and the state of the fuel market and technologies. The bill would require the state board, no later than December 2014, to include mechanisms and policies that favor low-carbon fuels with the highest possible sustainability based on specified factors and to incentives for sustainable fuels produced without food stock or displacement of food crops.

AB 1191, Energy: Assessments and Forecasts

Introduced by Assembly Member Patterson and on 05/24/2013 it is in committee: Set for a second hearing, but is on hold, " Held under submission."

The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 established the State Air Resources Board, (CARB), as the state agency responsible for monitoring and regulating sources emitting greenhouse gases. The act requires the state board to adopt a statewide greenhouse gas emissions limit, as defined, to be achieved by 2020, equivalent to the statewide greenhouse gas emissions levels in 1990. As mentioned in AB278, CARB has already established Low Carbon Fuel Standard regulations.

Existing law requires, beginning November 1, 2003, and every 2 years thereafter, the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission, commonly known as the California Energy Commission, to adopt an integrated energy policy report that contains an overview of certain topics including specified transportation forecasting and assessment activities.

This bill would require the California Energy Commission, commencing November 1, 2014, until November 1, 2020, to conduct the transportation forecasting and assessment activities annually and, in conducting the transportation forecasting and assessment activities, to also evaluate the sufficiency of credits issued under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard regulations, as specified.

AB 711, Hunting: Non-lead Ammunition - 09/20/2013 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 4 p.m.

AUTHOR(S) : Rendon (Principal coauthors: Alejo, Gatto, and Pan) – (Coauthors: Ammiano, Blumenfield, Fong, Holden, Stone, and Williams) (Coauthor: Senator Steinberg).

Existing law requires the Fish and Game Commission, by (1) July 1, 2008, to establish by regulation a process to certify centerfire rifle and pistol ammunition as non-lead ammunition, and to define by regulation non-lead ammunition as including only centerfire rifle and pistol ammunition in which there is no lead content; to establish and annually update a list of certified centerfire rifle and pistol ammunition.

Existing law requires that non-lead centerfire rifle and pistol ammunition, as determined by the commission, be used when taking big game with a rifle or pistol, as defined by the Department of Fish and Wildlife's hunting regulations, and when taking coyote, within specified deer hunting zones, but excluding specific counties and areas. A violation of these provisions is a crime.

Existing law requires the commission to establish a process, to the extent that funding is available, that will provide hunters in these specified deer hunting zones with non-lead ammunition at no or reduced charge.

This bill would instead require, as soon as is practicable, but by no later than July 1, 2019, the use of non-lead ammunition for the taking of all wildlife, including game mammals, game birds, nongame birds, and non-game mammals, with any firearm. The bill would require the commission to certify, by regulation, non-lead ammunition for these purposes. The bill would require that the list of certified ammunition include any federally approved nontoxic shotgun ammunition. The bill would make conforming changes. The bill would provide that these provisions do not apply to government officials or their agents when carrying out a statutory duty required by law.

The bill would require the commission to phase in these regulations by July 1, 2015 The bill would require that these requirements be fully implemented statewide by no later than July 1, 2019.

Travel Safe,
Greg M.

ACCCFrom the ACCC's July 2013 newsletter:

An excerpt from the ACCC newsletter. To view the entire newsletter go to http://www.acccdefender.org/docs/ACCC-Legislative-Alert-July-2013.pdf

The ACCC will continue to cultivate and foster relationships with legislators and regulators in Sacramento. We have found that meeting and establishing working relationships with these folks is of value to the ACCC. Whether we like it or not the Democrats are in charge with their "SuperMajority" and we must try, as hard as it seems, to work with them. Of course, that doesn't mean we roll over...We still must remain vigilant to any and all regulations, policies, procedures, or legislation that poses a threat to the car hobby and the enjoyment of our cars. There is a bit of good news to report...Florida has passed legislation that repeals a five year old statute requiring all state service stations to sell gasoline containing an established percentage (10%) of ethanol.

In addition, there is national legislation with two bills going before Congress relating to ethanol. One bill calling for a complete ban of E15 ethanol blended gasoline and the other bill calling for a ban on E15 pending further studies regarding the harmful effects of E15 on older vehicles and smaller gas engines, i.e. lawn mowers, leaf blowers, and weedeaters, etc.

The ACCC supports these bills and the ban of ethanol in our fuel and will keep you all posted on the progress of this legislation.

As of June 18, 2012 the following is an update on AB 1658.

AB2683

A reminder that as a result of AB2683 (Lieber) to end of the 30 year rolling exemption, the ACCC was able to get an amendment to the bill for motor vehicles at least 35 model years old. See sections from AB2683.

I met with BAR last week and there should be a blast sent out to smog stations reminding them about this exemption. If anyone has a problem with any 35 model year old vehicles, please let me know. One thing to remember is that the vehicle has to be insured as a collector vehicle.

Thank you

Update on AB1613 Donnelly (April 14, 2012)

Voted down by Committee Democrats on a party line vote, with one Member not voting, this bill would have simplified smog check requirements. Current law requires that a vehicle receive a new smog check both every 2 years and upon transfer of vehicle ownership even if the vehicle being transferred is already in compliance. This duplicative requirement is unnecessary and creates another financial burden for Californians.

"Selling a vehicle has no bearing on its emission levels. If Californians are already in compliance with smog regulations, having to pay for smog check yet again puts an unnecessary burden on our already cash-strapped citizens. California registration, licensing fees and smog requirements already cost more than other states; this is just another example of an out-of-touch legislature ignoring the real burden excessive regulations place on the people, particularly the poorest among us," Assemblyman Donnelly stated.

Existing law penalizes people who sell their vehicles, which is often a family's means of staying afloat in these tough economic times. For example, if a person purchases a vehicle and has a smog check conducted, they can drive the vehicle for 2 years without another check. If that same person sells their vehicle 1 year in, however, they will have to pay for another smog check, even though a passed smog test certificate claims that they are incompliance for the next 2 years. No other checks are required upon transfer of a vehicle including brake or engine checks.

Donnelly continued, "This would not only save Californians money but would also simplify the already complicated task of selling or buying a car. The bill would have only applied to vehicles that are in compliance with the smog check program guidelines. It is disappointing to see Assembly Democrats hang onto money grabs such as this duplicative requirement."

AB 1613 is supported by the Congress of Racial Equality of California, The Association of California Car Clubs, Cruisin' for a Cure (non-profit), Inland Empire Car Club Council, Capitol Auto Club (Thunderbolts), and individuals and it is coauthored by Assembly members Jim Silva and Kevin Jeffries, and Senator Ted Gaines.

The bill will be re-considered in the Assembly Transportation Committee on April 23, 2012. I encourage you all to contact not only the Assembly Transportation Committee but also your local representatives and urge their support of this common sense bill…Please see below a listing of committee members.

As usual, please contact me with questions, concerns, comments, or suggestions and thanks again for your support of the ACCC.
