This bill is an absolute atrocity for us here on the North Coast, and in particular for us here in Del Norte County of which you represent. We suffer from the general indifference of those in Sacramento who haven’t made the slightest attempt to formulate a bill to rescue Highway 101 from almost continual failure South of Crescent City, known as Last Chance Grade. In addition to that potential to cause great financial distress for us, you and your colleagues intend to pass a bill known as SB 1 which will not only fail to solve our most pressing infrastructure need, but cause retailers of all stripes to lose what little business that they currently can muster to retailers in Oregon due to the great disparity in sales and fuel taxes. We already lose a substantial amount of retail sales due to that proximity to Oregon whose retailers are not faced with sales tax or excessive fuel taxes. This new Senate Bill will only create a greater disparity, causing the economy in Del Norte County to bleed even more sales revenue. It is my hope that you will remember that you represent more than the larger populations to the South and not forget that we, in Del Norte County, are also your constituents. Please vote NO on SB 1 and formulate some thing that addresses at least some of the economic woes that are visited upon us by the Sate of California, of which SB 1 has the potential of being the most onerous.
Thank you for your attention.
