The LAO (Legislative Analyst Office) has said that if Gov. Schwarzenegger had raised the VLF (Vehicle License Fee) back up to its statutorily-mandated level of 2.0 % upon taking office after the 2003 recall election, California would currently have a budget surplus. Instead, he lowered it down to 0.65%. Last month (June), he raised it to 1.15%, which is still almost one-half of where it should be, by law. Please publicize the above, for this is California's short-term budget solution. (The long-term solution is the business side of Prop. 13, which is a fight for another day).
