Amendment offered by Rep. Jack O'Malley (R) on March 9, 2022
To "backfill" the estimated $725 million in gas and diesel tax collections the bill would cancel with regular state "general fund" revenue collected by other non-transportation taxes including the state income tax.
The amendment failed by voice vote in the House on March 9, 2022
To suspend collecting the state motor fuel tax levied on gasoline and diesel fuel purchases between April 1 and September 30, 2022. The current tax rate is 27.2 cents per gallon on both fuels, and revenue from it pays for state and local road repairs. The House Fiscal Agency projects this would reduce that revenue by $725 million in 2022, leaving an equivalent amount in motorists' pockets.
