Andrade, Harris and Jackson renew calls for governor to suspend gas tax, provide immediate relief to Hoosiers
INDIANAPOLIS – With Indiana’s gasoline taxes hitting 74.5 cents per gallon this month, State Reps. Mike Andrade (D-Munster), Earl L. Harris Jr. (D-East Chicago) and Carolyn Jackson (D-Hammond) are renewing calls for Gov. Eric Holcomb to immediately suspend the state gasoline use tax and gasoline excise tax until July.
“It’s unacceptable for our state to continue profiting when Hoosiers are hurting right now,” Andrade said. “Every time Hoosiers pay at the pump, our state reaps revenue dollars. My Republican colleagues have celebrated Indiana’s historic $5 billion surplus – so why not put it to work for everyday Hoosiers? Either Gov. Holcomb must suspend the gas tax temporarily or the General Assembly should take action to do so on Technical Corrections Day in a few weeks.”
