Proposition 6 would repeal the gas tax and transportation funding package that Governor Brown signed last year. That could put money back in your pocket at the pump, but take money out of roads and transit.

"The governor and the two-thirds of the legislature need to sign off on fuel taxes in California. Now, voters would have to approve too."

KALW’s Hana Baba spoke with transportation reporter Eli Wirtschafter about what Prop 6 would mean for California.
