A Call for Transparency
By Senator Mark Wyland (R-Carlsbad)

Before Sacramento politicians consider raising revenue or creating a new program, they must do two things: find the waste in existing programs, and disclose to taxpayers how every dollar is being spent.

Unfortunately, most levels of government, from Washington D.C. to your local city council, fail to disclose how revenues are being spent, which can lead to scandalous abuse. Take the City of Bell, where it was recently revealed that three administrators were making $1.6 million a year! When most Californians are struggling through tough economic times, it is shameless that taxpayers were taken advantage of for so long. This could have been avoided had taxpayers known how and where our money is spent.

I have introduced legislation to require an audit of every government program to ensure these types of abuses don’t happen at the state level. I also support efforts to employ new reporting requirements for cities and counties to ensure greater transparency in the future.

Senator Mark Wyland represents the people of the 38th Senate District, which includes cities in north San Diego County and the south Orange County cities of San Juan Capistrano.

Democrats Propose Massive Middle-Class Tax Hikes
By Assemblyman Martin Garrick

This week Democratic legislators finally put forward a budget. They are proposing a massive middle-class tax hike that will hurt seniors, renters, and working Californians the most. They want to raise $8.7 billion dollars in new income taxes by taking an additional one percent from all taxpayers, except those in the top bracket.

This would cost the average family making $60,000 per year an additional $473 in state income taxes. They also want to nearly triple the car tax. That same average family would pay an additional $118 dollars per year just to register their car with the DMV. Both of these tax increases were overwhelmingly rejected - by 65 percent of the voters - in a special election held just last year.

If these new taxes weren’t enough, they also planning to raise billions in taxes on oil and job creators. This is in spite of the fact that we have the highest gas taxes per gallon in the nation, and small businesses and job creators continue to leave the state.

Fortunately for taxpayers, these tax hikes are a non-starter. Any budget that would permanently punish the middle-class with billions in tax hikes just to fund this year’s overspending will not pass. Republicans remain committed to balancing the budget responsibly, without raising taxes.
