Senator Morrell has led efforts to hold the line against new taxes. In 2015, he and his Republican colleagues successfully stopped billions of dollars in proposed increases. Senator Morrell is also committed to preserving Proposition 13, which has protected property owners from excessive taxation for nearly 40 years.
Californians already pay more in taxes than most Americans – our elected representatives should not be passing laws that take even more money out of our pockets to pay for big government policies. To that end, Senator Morrell has authored legislation to repeal erroneous taxes on Californians, including the legally contested fire tax.
