California State Gas Tax Alternatives

Location California
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).
