With a 34 Billion dollar state deficit, sombody tell me why this organization is necessay? I am still trying to figure out why this organization will NOT let me register my bike in Cal. As a taxpayer in Cal. I am concerned at any organization which would rather act bureaucratic than what is in the best interest of the state. This organization has to be responsible for 1000's of lost tax dollars that could go to helping our state recover. With all the state cuts coming, I hope our state govt. plans to include cuts in this department, meaning cuts in the CARB. This is a governement organization that is costing Cal. taxpayers $$$$, making bad decisions, and that we can do without. I will be paying my state tax on bike registration to another state.
