Organization

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 a health impact assessment (HIA) to identify potential health effects of proposed changes to California's state gas tax, such as replacing the tax with a mileage-based user fee. The HIA investigated whether any of the alternatives would adversely affect existing socio-economic or geographic health disparities. The HIA developed recommendations for minimizing potential health risks and maximizing benefits and provided a template for examining the potential health impacts of related state and local policies (e.g., toll roads, vehicle license fees, sales tax).
