California State Gas Tax Alternatives HIA
- Center for Health Advancement at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health
The Center for Health Advancement at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health conducted an HIA to identify potential health effects of proposed changes to California's state gas tax. Alternatives include replacing the gas tax with a mileage-based user fee. The HIA examined if any of the gas tax alternatives adversely would affect existing socio-economic or geographic health disparities. In addition to developing recommendations for minimizing potential health risks and maximizing benefits, the HIA provides a template for examining the potential health impacts of related state and local policies (e.g. toll roads, vehicle license feeds, sales tax, etc.).
