BREAKING: Republican Young Kim Opposes Potential Federal Gas Tax Increase “Will hurt Southern Californians of all backgrounds”

ORANGE COUNTY, CA- – Republican Congressional candidate Young Kim (CA-39) announced her opposition to the potential increase in the federal gas tax.

“I stand against the current attempt to increase federal gas taxes,” said Young Kim. “As we have seen in California, raising the gas tax increases costs on hard working men and women that are already struggling to get by. Any increase, even incremental, will hurt Californians of all backgrounds and continue to raise the already high cost of living in Southern California.”

Several Media outlets have reported that President Donald Trump voiced support for a 25 cent a gallon increase in gas and diesel taxes in order to fund his recent infrastructure proposal. The 25 cent increase would be in addition to the 12 cent California state gas tax increase that went into affect on November 1, 2017.

The 39th Congressional District is split between Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. To learn more about Young Kim and her campaign please visit
