Hogan Lobs Gas Tax Hike Hot Potato At Peter Franchot

Governor Larry Hogan has called on Peter Franchot to immediately take steps to halt or minimize the impact of the legislative gas tax increase that the Comptroller’s office is scheduled to announce in the coming days.

Under legislation passed by the General Assembly in 2013, the Comptroller announces gas tax increases on or before June 1 of each year that take effect on July 1. The Comptroller’s Office calculates the tax increase based on the consumer price index.
