Should California lawmakers receive free gasoline?
Lynn Barsnick Consultant
I don’t agree with that idea. They should pay for their own gas to help support the economy. Lawmakers should not get anything different than the general population. I had no idea this was happening but I certainly do wonder what other spe- cial treatments they get.
Donna Garrison Movie Producer
I think that if the gas is being used in the course of government work I’m okay with it, but that is difficult to track.
Bernie Berke Music Teacher
Of course they should not receive free gasoline, It takes from the money coming into the state to sup- port other programs. I wonder what else they are receiving as a perk that we don’t know about? If it is part of their daily job travel I guess I see supporting that but how would that be regulated?
Tom Doyle Assistant Superintendent
That is ridiculous. Perhaps if they did not receive free gasoline they might be pushed to do something about the situation with the price of gas these days. In order to make laws that help the general popula- tion, lawmakers need to experience life at the same level.
Randy Schwartz Mechanic
Seems a little over the top. Why should they get free gasoline? They should be held accountable to prove the gas was used for official busi- ness.
