Statement From Erie County Republican Committiee Chairman Michael Kracker on Erie County Legislature Democratic Caucus Decision to increase Gas Tax

Statement From Erie County GOP Chairman Michael Kracker

“With costs increasing in nearly every facet of our lives, taxpayers desperately need relief. Instead, Erie County Democratic lawmakers rejected a Republican-led effort to extend gas tax relief for struggling families and businesses. Despite a record surplus, Democrats voted to allow the gas tax to increase by 4.75%, effective March 1, 2024.

While Republicans fight to lower costs for taxpayers and businesses, Democrats across Erie County are stuffing massive tax hikes in their stockings this holiday season. “
