Title

Resolution directing the Department of Administration-Intergovernmental Relations Division to seek introduction and passage of State legislation temporarily suspending the State’s excise tax on motor vehicle fuel.

Analysis

This resolution directs the Department of Administration-Intergovernmental Relations Division to seek introduction and passage of State legislation temporarily suspending the State’s excise tax on motor vehicle fuel.

 

Body

Whereas, The State of Wisconsin currently levies an excise tax of $0.309 per gallon of motor vehicle fuel based on terminal receipts and imports of motor vehicle fuel into the state; and

 

Whereas, The cost of this excise tax is passed on directly to retail motor vehicle fuel buyers in terms of higher prices at the retail pump; and

 

Whereas, Recent retail price increases for motor vehicle fuel significantly burden Milwaukee residents, especially the economically disadvantaged who are least able to absorb the additional cost; and

 

Whereas, High motor vehicle fuel prices increase inflationary pressure in the economy and impede economic growth; and

 

Whereas, A temporary suspension of the Wisconsin’s motor vehicle fuel excise tax would provide relief for residents struggling to recover from the COVID pandemic and help stimulate economic growth; now, therefore, be it

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Department of Administration-Intergovernmental Relations Division is directed to seek introduction and passage of State legislation temporarily suspending the State’s excise tax on motor vehicle fuel; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That Common Council Resolution File Number 200668 is amended by inserting the following item in the document attached to the file and identified as “2020-2021 Leg. Package - Detailed Proposals”:
