Unemployment is exploding at depression era levels and Californians across the state are already struggling to make ends meet.
Now, Sacramento bureaucrats are imposing a new housing fee called Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) that will increase the cost of new housing by as much as $72,000 per home and drive rents higher. This new housing fee penalizes families who have to drive greater distances to work and will have an unintended consequence of hitting African American, Asian American and Latino communities especially hard, further hurting the Californians impacted most by the COVID-19 recession.
At a time when unemployment is skyrocketing, the last thing Californians can afford is to make housing and rents even more expensive.
