2A new California road repair and transportation investment package is being considered by the legislature. If passed, the bill would spend $52 billion dollars over ten years, and take steps to guarantee the money is only spent on transportation. Some of the money would be raised by a 12 cent per gallon increase in the tax on gasoline. Do you support or oppose this part of the plan?

5The proposal also calls for a "transportation improvement fee," similar to the vehicle registration fee owners currently pay the DMV annually. The fee would range from $25-$175 a year based on a vehicle's value. Do you support or oppose this fee?

6State Republicans are calling the plan the largest gas tax increase in state history, adding $5 billion to Caltrans' budget of $10.5 billion. Do you think the additional funds are needed, or should Caltrans make better use of gas tax revenue it currently gets?
