Gov. Eric Holcomb said he agrees with legislative leaders who are reluctant to pause the state’s gas tax. But he said he’s planning on working with the General Assembly on inflation relief for Hoosiers.
Republican legislative leaders have been consistently against using the state’s budget surplus on temporarily halting Indiana’s gas tax. For every gallon Hoosiers spend at the pump, 32 cents goes back to the state.
And with just two months left in the current fiscal year, Indiana is on pace for budget reserves that could top $6 billion.
