Politics on the Hudson is reporting the Senate Republicans are calling for a gas tax holiday. The legislation would provide an elimination of taxes on all purchases of gasoline from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
This would further savings to consumer's from the current $2.00 gas cap that was enact last year by the state and Jefferson County.
Fellow blogger DD (although this blog was a slight burr in his saddle this week, but he will calm down) was in favor of a measure like this earlier in the year and while he would probably prefer a lengthier time frame for the elimination, he should certainly support this measure. But, as PotH states there is no word whether the Assembly Democratic majority would support this measure and by the sounds of remarks from Governor Paterson, he appears to be somewhat reluctant.
