MESSAGE FROM FREEDOM WORKS:
The North Carolina Gas Tax is already the third highest in the nation and was just increased by 2 cents per gallon (July 1, 2011). It is projected to increase another 4 cents per gallon (January 1, 2012).
This increase will bring our gas tax to 39 cents per gallon, an 11% increase, making ours the 2nd highest gas tax in the nation!
Immediately after Thanksgiving, legislators return to Raleigh. We need to send a strong message that struggling North Carolinians cannot take another gas tax increase. OUR GAS TAX MUST BE CAPPED!
Please TAKE ACTION by calling the office of Thom Tillis, Speaker of the North Carolina House, and Phil Berger, President Pro Tempore of the North Carolina Senate. Please ask Representative Tillis and Senator Berger to allow House Bill 399 to be heard and voted on.
The Honorable Thom Tillis
House Speaker (919) 733-3451
The Honorable Phil Berger
Senate President Pro Tempore (919) 733-5708
