Supervisors Joel Anderson and Jim Desmond co-authored a letter released Monday to fellow Board of Supervisors members asking them to back the suspension of California’s 51 cents a gallon gas tax for one year. 

Desmond and Anderson’s joint proposal calls to temporarily suspend the fee with Desmond citing the state’s sizable budget surplus.

In a statement to FOX 5, Anderson, who represents District 2, said, “People in my district are suffering from these high gas prices. That’s why I was eager to join Supervisor Desmond in co-authoring this board letter.”
