To Governor Schwarzenegger:
It’s quite clearly the case, Green Governor, that we need to
fix California’s transit systems, which are broke and breaking.
Under-served areas had critical lifeline service put to the chopping block, but
climate change demands that we reduce vehicle miles traveled statewide.
Killing the gas sales tax and raising the excise tax will only facilitate
your relentless theft of transit funding, in this budget, as in so many
others — though your action now undermines the rulings of state courts.
Undeniably, you have started down the wrong path. For shame, Arnold, for shame.
