NFIB: It's 'an Absolute Shame' Senate Rejected Amendment to Suspend the Fuel Tax

Date: March 24, 2022

NFIB State Director Christopher Carlozzi released the following statement today in response to the failure of the state Senate to support temporarily suspending the state’s fuel tax:

“It is an absolute shame that some lawmakers feel the effort to provide relief at the gas pumps for small businesses and working families is merely a ‘gimmick’. It is unacceptable to claim that the state of Massachusetts, which received billions of dollars in federal aid, needs this money more than a neighborhood restaurant trying to deliver a pizza or a plumber driving to a job site.

“Massachusetts must follow the lead of other states and suspend the state gas tax to help keep more money in the wallets of small businesses and working families who are already struggling with inflation.”
