House Republicans Renew their Call for a Special Session to Address Maryland’s Gas Tax

House Republicans renewed their call today for a Special Session to address Maryland’s gas tax. In a statement today, House Minority Leader Jason Buckel said, “nearly a month ago, we wrote to the Governor and the leadership of the General Assembly urging them to call a special session to stop automatic increase in the gas tax and to resume a gas tax holiday. Today, leaders at all levels of government and ac ross the political spectrum see the suspension of gas taxes as a way to help citizens cope with rising gas prices. The time to do this is now. Why are Maryland’s Democrats refusing to help our citizens?”

Below is the letter my colleagues and I originally sent back on May 24.
