Petition to remove the "Commercial use" registration payment for normal trucks

I didnt really know how to word it. Basicaly I am trying to see how many people in CA would be willing to sign a petition to remove the vehicle overweight or commercial use payment (I forget the name) on their yearly registration.

The way I figure it is that if we can get 10,000 sigs then someone will pay attention, but need at least 670,816. I NEED YOUR HELP TO GET THAT MANY SIGS!!

Here is a link to the petition that I just created. Hopefully this will get those jerkoffs to remove that stupid fee and stop taking our money!!

http://www.petitiononline.com/windy520/petition.html

Net number of signatures required: 8% of votes cast for Governor for a
constitutional amendment (670,816) and 5% for a statute (419,094)

According to this site

http://www.iandrinstitute.org/New%20...California.pdf

and this is the process:

Basic Procedures: The first step in the process of qualifying an initiative is to
write the text of the proposed law. The measure's proponents in many
cases may obtain assistance from the Legislative Counsel in drafting the
measure. To do so, the proponents must present the idea for the law to
the Legislative Counsel, and the request for a draft of the proposed law
must be signed by 25 or more electors. The Legislative Counsel will then
draft the proposed law if it is determined that there is a reasonable
probability the measure will eventually be submitted to the voters. The
draft of the proposed measure must then be submitted to the Attorney
General, who prepares the title and summary. The Attorney General
provides the Secretary of State with a copy of this title and summary within
15 days of the receipt of the final version of the measure. The Attorney
General works closely with proponents on this language, but gets the final
say.
If the Attorney General determines that the measure requires a fiscal
analysis, the Department of Finance and the Joint Legislative Budget
Committee are asked to prepare an analysis within 25 working days from
the date they receive the final version of the proposed initiative. The fiscal
analysis includes either the estimate of the amount of any increase or
decrease in revenues or costs to the state or local government, or an
opinion as to whether or not a substantial net change in state or local
finances would result if the proposed initiative is adopted. If, in the opinion
of the Dept. of Finance and the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, a
reasonable estimate of the net impact of the proposed initiative cannot
be prepared within the 25-day period, the Dept. of Finance and the
Budget Committee shall, within the 25-day period, give the Attorney
General their opinion as to whether or not a substantial net change in the
state or local finances would result if the proposed initiative is adopted.
The fiscal analysis is then included in the official summary. (If a fiscal
estimate is required, the Attorney General shall prepare the title and
summary within 15 days after receipt of the estimate prepared by the
Dept. of Finance and the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.)
When the official summary is complete, the Attorney General sends it
to the proponents, the Senate, the Assembly, and the Secretary of State. It
is at this time that proponents can begin circulating. It generally takes 30-
45 days between submitting an initiative and approval for circulation.
The Legislature may conduct public hearings on the proposed
initiative, but cannot amend it.

Appreciate it. Legally I'm not a CA citizen either, so I cant even sign it, but I have so many buddies in the military, and some that are not that are paying an arm and a leg for registration for their trucks when it shouldnt cost more than $100 per year

So far it seems like there isnt much of a concern for this issue. I mean I am down to get the forms, and get a bunch of sigs myself, but I am going to need a lot of help.
