TO ALL PERSONS INTERESTED IN THE MATTER OF REGIONAL MEASURE 3, A $3 TOLL INCREASE ON SEVEN STATE-OWNED BRIDGES THAT WAS PRESENTED TO VOTERS ON THE JUNE 5, 2018 BALLOT PURSUANT TO SENATE BILL 595, AND MATTERS RELATED THERETO:
A civil complaint has been filed in California Superior Court for the County of San Francisco by plaintiffs Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, Brandon Kline, Angelique Bacon, and Deidre Dawson against defendants Bay Area Toll Authority and California State Legislature for the purpose of determining the validity of the Regional Measure 3 toll increase.
Plaintiffs allege that the toll increase fits the definition of a state tax; therefore the bill authorizing it, Senate Bill 595, required 2/3 legislative approval, which it did not receive. Alternatively, plaintiffs allege that the toll increase is a local special tax; therefore Regional Measure 3 required 2/3 voter approval, which it did not receive. Plaintiffs allege that the toll increase does not qualify as an exempt local or state fee, therefore it is invalid.
To be heard regarding this matter, you must file with the court a written response to the complaint by September 4, 2018. If you do not file a timely written response with the court, plaintiffs may apply for entry of default and the relief sought by their complaint. You may obtain a copy of the complaint by contacting plaintiffs' counsel using the address or telephone number shown below. If you respond to contest or defend the legality or validity of the matter, you will not be subject to punitive action such as wage garnishment or seizure of real or personal property.
