South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford wants to suspend the state's gasoline tax for the summer to give motorists a break on prices.
Wednesday, Sanford called on the House and Senate to provide immediate tax relief to South Carolinians in the form of suspending the state's 16.75 cent per gallon gasoline tax from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
In order to provide this tax relief, the Governor has asked the South Carolina House of Representatives to amend their budget before sending it back to the Senate to include $134 million to cover the cost of the gas tax suspension, and for both the Senate and House to adopt the recommendation when the state budget goes to conference committee later this month.
