A bill in the California legislature is designed to give an unelected bureaucracy extreme authority to monitor and control people’s access to transport, all in the name of Gaia.
SB 350 is ultimately a gasoline-rationing act. The bill gives the California Air Resources Board free rein to enact a mandatory 50 percent gasoline and diesel fuel restriction (8 billion gallons annually) by the year 2030.
To meet the mandate, the state air resources board will be able to ration gas, place mobility restrictions on state residents, place surcharges on family mini-vans, trucks and SUVs, and even monitor individuals’ fuel consumption records.
It is amazing how much freedom people are willing to exchange in return for a gay marriage license and free sh-t from the Government.
It’s kind of a weird inversion of the 1981 B-movie ‘The Last Chase,’ in which cars have been outlawed everywhere except California. I guess movie producers in 1981 could not imagine their state would ever fundamentally transform from a free state to a dystopia.
