HARRISBURG – PA Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman has taken a stand against record prices at the gas pump by calling for a reduction in the state’s gasoline tax. His Consumer Gas Prices Relief Act coupled with a federal gas tax holiday would cut the gas tax by almost 50% through December 31, 2022. Corman said the measures would offer a critical reprieve for PA families who have seen gas prices skyrocket over the past several weeks. To offset the lost revenue for road and bridge repairs, Corman’s legislation would dedicate $500 million in federal relief dollars to fund State Police operations so money would no longer need to be diverted from the Motor License Fund. In addition, the legislation would require PennDOT to issue a $650 million bond to ensure critical infrastructure projects remain funded during the period of the gas tax reduction.
