Sign the Petition: Stop the TCI Gas Tax
Governor Janet Mills is considering entering Maine into the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI), a regional coalition of 12 states that seeks to eliminate carbon emissions within the transportation sector by making the price of gasoline and diesel fuel so prohibitively expensive that Mainers will no longer use gas-powered vehicles.
Make no mistake, the TCI is a T-A-X.
It forces fuel suppliers to purchase allowances for the carbon emitted by their fuel products, and that cost is passed down to consumers in the form of higher gas and diesel prices at the pump: as much as 17 cents per gallon in the first year alone, costing the average family in the TCI region an extra $225 per year.
Sign the petition below to tell Governor Mills to reject Maine’s participation in this regional gas tax scheme.
