Gas tax recall effort hits goal in recall petition signatures

CALIFORNIA (KUSI) — The local effort to recall state legislators who voted in favor of the state’s controversial gas tax hike has reached a milestone.

The founder of this effort – former Councilman, Carl Demaio – chose State Senator Josh Newman of Fullerton, who cast the deciding vote. 

If upheld, organizers have now collected enough signatures to trigger the first recall election.
