Tell Big Oil to Pay Its Fair Share for California's Students

California Assembly Bill 656 will help reverse the skyrocketing fees and tuition at our UC, CSU and community college campuses. While California is struggling with record deficits and education funding is being gutted, big oil is enjoying historic profits. But California is the only major oil producing state in the country that doesn't charge big oil their fair share. Alaska imposes a 25% oil severance fee and Texas raises up to $400 million annually through a similar fee.

It's time to make the oil and gas industry pay their fair share to help save our colleges and universities.

Sign the petition to add your name to the list of supporters that California State Assemblyman Alberto Torrico will present on the floor.
