Sen. Looney & Sen. Duff Release Statement on GOP Gas Tax Press Conference

HARTFORD – Today, Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statement in response to the Republican press conference on the gas tax:

“Senate Democrats are in ongoing conversations regarding tax relief for Connecticut residents, including reducing the gas tax. Democrats have and will continue to push for policies that reduce the tax burden for middle and working class families while ensuring that the most wealthy and corporations pay their fair share. Drivers across the country are suffering from the impact of Putin’s Price Hike as a result of his devastating and criminal war in Ukraine. Thankfully President Biden is working to address oil supply around the world in the short term which will have the largest impact on the price of this global commodity.”
