SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown and leaders of the California Legislature are proposing a $52 billion plan to fix California's roads.
The state's Democratic leaders said Wednesday that they would pay for it with a big increase in the gas tax, higher car registration fees and a $100 charge on emission-free vehicles. Brown says the money will mostly go to fixing existing roads and bridges.
The measure will require support from two-thirds of lawmakers in the Assembly and Senate because it raises taxes.
