Liquid Fuel Tax Increase article!

On September 29, 2017, the legislature voted to pass Bill 122-34 increasing the liquid fuel tax without the consent of the electorate as prescribed in PL 24-222.

P.L. 24-222 is clear; (a) I Liheslaturan Guåhan must pass, in bill form, a proposed tax increase, the effective date to be thirty (30) days after ratification by the voters of Guam in a referendum, such ratification to be certified by the Guam Election Commission. (b) The bill must detail the amount and nature of the proposed increase and the purpose to which such proposed increase shall be applied.

Bill 122-34 was signed into law on October 12, 2017 in violation of P.L. 24-222.

The direct intent of P.L. 24-222 was to give people the right to “ratify” any tax increase, while the intent of P.L. 122-34 is to fix village roads.There are already statutes in place to fix village roads that don’t impede on the people’s right to participate on issues of taxation.

SIGN THIS PETITION! 

Let our leaders know to suspend P.L.122-34 from going into effect until it is approved or disapproved in the next General Election as provided for in P.L. 24-222.

The cornerstone of our democracy is the unimpeded participation of all the citizens in the process as prescribed by law.
