HARRISBURG – To provide relief to Pennsylvanians who are struggling due to rising gas prices, Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman has introduced a bill that would significantly cut the state’s liquid fuels tax. Senate Bill 10, called the Consumer Gas Prices Relief Act, would slash the state’s gas tax by one-third through the end of the year. The revenue would be replaced by a mix of federal funds and a bond issue to ensure critical infrastructure projects are not delayed or deferred due to the gas tax cut. Coupled with a federal gas tax holiday that Corman supports, the plan could reduce gas taxes paid by consumers at the pump by nearly 50%. Corman says higher gas prices are taking more money out of consumers’ wallets at a time when families can least afford another financial burden. A bipartisan group of state senators have signed on to support the measure.
