ICYMI: Kansas Reflector: “Davids renews call for suspension of federal gas tax; Adkins rejects idea”

Yesterday, the Kansas Reflector reported on Sharice for Congress’ first ad of the 2022 cycle, a drive-time radio ad that “points to the gasoline tax policy gap between Davids and Adkins.” 

The ad highlights Rep. Sharice Davids’ work to get Kansans immediate relief at the gas pump—meanwhile, Amanda Adkins “denounced the idea” of giving a common-sense tax break to Kansas families.

Read more in the Kansas Reflector:

“TOPEKA — Democratic U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids and Republican congressional candidate Amanda Adkins disagree about proposals before Congress to temporarily suspend the federal tax on gasoline for the remainder of the year due to surges in fuel prices at the pump.

Davids, the 3rd District representative seeking re-election, said the 18-cent-per-gallon tax should be suspended through legislation that would shield the highway trust fund from a decline in revenue. The proposal emerged as consumers dealt with sticker shock worsened by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Here at home, folks are already feeling the effects of this uncertainty, mainly in the form of rising prices at the gas pump,” Davids said. “This comes as hard-working Kansans are also dealing with increased prices on groceries and medicine, further squeezing what was already a tight budget for many families.”

Adkins, who is seeking the GOP nomination in the 3rd District after losing to Davids in 2020, denounced the idea with posts to social media.
