Rep. Deane Rykerson (D-Kittery) is pushing a new carbon tax bill that would put a tax on all the home heating fuels and gasoline that Mainers need to keep their homes warm and travel to work and other places, the bill then increases the tax automatically every year for the next 8 years.
Rep. Rykerson has admitted that his plan will increase heating oil and gasoline prices.
Maine can’t afford this tax. We are one of the coldest, and largest states. This bill literally makes it harder for Mainers to stay warm and earn a living.
Speaker Sara Gideon was at his press conference supporting this terrible plan.
This bill is a serious threat.
