Sanders Threatening To Sue State Over Gas Tax Money

Posted: Updated:
Mayor Jerry Sanders is threatening to sue the state over gas tax money.

Speaking outside City Hall Tuesday, Sanders says he's flying to Sacramento Wednesday to deliver a strong message. There, Sanders will meet with the state treasurer and lawmakers.

At risk is $24 million gas tax revenue San Diego uses for street repairs.

Sanders says he will fight tooth and nail so the state can't take away local money to balance its budget.

"We're going to let them know very clearly that we are not going to sit by and let them steal local money that is meant for our streets and roads, and our highways and our neighborhoods."

California has until July 1 to pass a balanced budget.
