I'm not a legislator and I don't think any California legislator's read this but I'm going to share this idea anyway. Electric cars pay the mileage tax, gas cars and hybrids pay the gas tax.
That seems to be the most reasonable idea.
Actually, I just re-read the OP. This is an exploratory program. If it were to go into effect it would do away with the gas tax in favor of the mileage tax. No double taxation, I don't understand why anyone would be opposed to this.
...replacing the state gas tax with mileage fees.
On July 1, Oregon launched its third pilot program, asking 5,000 volunteers to pay 1.5 cents per mile they drive. Vehicle mileage is tracked by a device plugged into each car, and gas taxes are refunded.
