Marter for Congress in Support of Biden Gas Tax Pause (Oswego, IL) — Jim Marter, candidate for Congress in Illinois’ 14th District, announced his support today for the proposed pause in the federal gas tax.
“What’s being proposed is only a 90 day pause. What we really need is a sound energy policy. In the absence of that, people do need relief and families in Illinois need it in particular,” said Marter.
“My long term energy plan includes an ‘all of the above’ approach and a level playing field where there’s fair competition that benefits the consumer. After the Red Wave and I’m in Congress, we’ll bring American Energy back. For the time being, we’re stuck and people need relief. I’m calling on Representative Lauren Underwood to support this pause. After all, it was the policies she keeps voting for that got us into this mess in the first place. Real help is on the way after the election in November.”
