The House 29-127, rejected an amendment that would provide a tax rebate to farmers for the cost of fuel taxes paid for the operation of farm equipment from July 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022.
Amendment supporters said the rebate will help hardworking farmers during this difficult economic time. They noted it will also help combat food shortages.
Amendment opponents said this rebate is a new idea and should be filed as a separate bill in order to hold public hearings on the measure.
(A “Yes” vote is for the rebate. A “No” vote is against it).
