Metcalfe Calls for Immediate Taxpayer Action to Shut Down Corbett Gas Tax Increase
HARRISBURG — Anticipating final legislative action Thursday on the $2 billion Corbett Gas Tax Increase, State Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) is urging all Pennsylvania taxpayers to contact their state lawmakers and demand that they VOTE NO on higher taxes. This plan will result in all Pennsylvania drivers paying the highest gas tax in the nation and significant increases in many vehicle-related fees and fines. This legislation also provides for nearly $500 million in additional funding for mass transit.

“The 28 cents per gallon Corbett Gas Tax Increase only passed by three votes on Tuesday,” said Metcalfe. “If hardworking Pennsylvania taxpayers contact their state legislators and demand a NO vote, WE THE PEOPLE may be able to indefinitely stop the highest gas tax in the nation.”
