Thank you chair, & board members for taking our comments.

 

Under the current proposal, the Current & highest gas taxes in the country that are used to prob up our current crumbling transportation infrastructure will be lost by pushing more regressive taxes on the miles needed to travel by small to large business needed to produce jobs, transport agriculture and deliver goods and services. 

We are undoubtably seeing record inflation that includes the auto industry, where even within the last few days in the articles stating VW will struggle with inflation and will be a direct target on EV prices. The auto manufacture may not be able to deliver on the affordable price point as intended. Hyundai motor co. is expected to deal with the same challenges, especially with the volatile price of cobalt for battery production. 

Increased regulation will not allow auto manufactures to produce affordable EVs. As a result, this proposal will be an attack on working families and business that would be forced to acquire these vehicles to work and travel in an already struggling economy. There is no doubt carbon neutrality is an ideal goal, but the current proposal is short sited when it comes to economic impacts and premature in regards to supply, production and infrastructure.  

The Coalition of Chambers Orange County urges the board to reject these proposals and support workers and business of California.
