If that is the thinking of the Second District Court of Appeals, why doesn't California just double the existing state tax on gasoline to help cover the cost of public transportation, providing education materials and promoting the use of public transportation? Heck, if that's all that is needed to impose a tax that does NOT require voter approval, crank up the gasoline tax to resolve the deficit and put everyone but government emplolyees out of work.

Oops, spoke too soon. California regulators just decided (without voter approval) today to raise everyone's gasoline taxes 10%. That's another $1.5 million per day taken out of taxpayers pockets. Looking forward to California's Second District Court of Appeals to declare the gasoline tax to be a cost of maintaining roads and bridges and not really a tax after all.
