Murkowski proposes gas tax break

Posted: Wednesday, June 28, 2000

WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Frank Murkowski, R-Alaska, has introduced a bill to give motorists a break on gasoline taxes.

The bill would allow individuals and families to take a tax deduction on their federal income taxes for gasoline taxes incurred between July 1 and Dec. 31, 2000.

In introducing the measure, Murkowski said motorists are facing a gasoline emergency and said the tax break would ease the burden they face each time they fill their gas tank.

The bill is co-sponsored by Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell, R-Colo. and Sen. Spencer Abraham, R-Mich.
