“Economic uncertainty around the globe continues to affect us all at the pump. It is hurting our businesses, local governments, and worst of all, our working families who are now struggling financially to drive kids to school, go to the grocery store, or even get to work. As leaders of this state, we need to take action to provide this much needed tax relief that will directly benefit our hurting families.”
I have joined with a group of bi-partisan lawmakers on a common-sense solution to address our rising gas prices:
- Immediately suspend the state’s gas tax for a year
- Backfill transportation project funding through the General Fund Surplus, and
- Require retailers to pass on 100% of savings from the tax cut to consumers.
