With Gas Prices Skyrocketing, Governor Hogan Signs First-in-Nation Emergency Gas Tax Suspension

While Washington continues to be weighed down by partisan gridlock, Governor Hogan is delivering relief for Marylanders from high gas prices amid the global energy crisis.

Earlier today, Governor Hogan signed into law a first-in-the-nation emergency suspension of the gas tax. The bill passed both chambers of Maryland’s legislature with unanimous support.

This is just another example of how Governor Hogan has successfully secured support from his overwhelmingly Democratic to cut taxes every single year of his governorship – the only Republican governor in America to do so. Last year, Governor Hogan passed the largest tax cut in Maryland history with near unanimous support.

Once again, Governor Hogan has shown how to put aside partisan politics and work across the aisle to achieve results in times of crisis.
