SACRAMENTO - A Kern County Supervisor is testifying Thursday against a big tax on the oil industry.
Fourth District (Lost Hills to Frazier Park) Supervisor David Couch is speaking to the State Senate against SB 1017, a oil severance tax.
The tax would be devastating to Kern County, Couch says. There would be a loss in tens of millions in property tax revenue that funds schools.
The measure would impose a 9.5 percent tax on oil and 3.5 percent tax on natural gas.
