Call your state Senator today. Tell him/her to support ABX8 6, the Assembly version of the gas tax swap. This version, unlike the Governator's plan, includes $400m/yr in public transit operations funding, and also allows local governments to pass new gas taxes to fund transit, walking and cycling. It's still a cut compared to the old State Transit Assistance program, which was over $1bn a year, but it's an increase compared to the last three years of $0, and it's politically feasible.
