INLAND EMPIRE BILL PROVIDES FAIRNESS AND RELIEF

The Governor has signed SB 130 (Committee on the Budget) which expands the existing Vehicle License Fee Adjustment to the cities of Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Menifee and Wildomar, allowing them to receive millions of dollars in additional property tax revenue.  This is an idea that has been championed by Senator Richard Roth (D-Riverside) for the last few years.

“With this bill, millions of tax dollars will flow to benefit the people of Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Menifee and Wildomar,” said Governor Brown. “Senator Roth and Assemblymember Cervantes pushed hard to ensure these communities weren’t left behind.”

Based on Department of Finance estimates, these cities are expected to collectively receive up to $19 million in additional funding annually. This revenue will help these cities fund critical needs.

This is an issue that many of our members in Riverside County have been working on and advocating on behalf of for several years.  On their behalf, we thank Senator Roth for his tenacity in pursuing this change and the Governor for signing the bill.
