Governor proposes first new gas tax in 20 years

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) -   The governor is proposing the first new gas tax in more than 20 years.

It will be used to pay for transportation and to repair aging roads.

Triple A says Californians already pay about 70 cents a gallon in fees and taxes.

Some drivers and business owners are frustrated.  

"Just don't understand how they can just keep raising it and there's nothing I can do about it."

In addition, the proposed tax hike wouldn't be a ballot measure.

The governor recently issued a proclamation calling for a special session where lawmakers would negotiate the amount.
