Assemblyman Dan Stec (R,I,C-Queensbury) joined several of his Assembly colleagues and statewide business leaders at a press conference today to call for the elimination of the state’s 18-A energy tax from the 2013-14 budget.

“The 18-A energy tax is yet another way our state nickel-and-dimes our residents and job creators,” said Stec. “By eliminating this tax, we can save our taxpayers $200 million this year alone. That’s money that could be used to help families put food on the table and for small businesses to invest in the innovation and creativity necessary for job growth. I urge the Governor and Legislature to take action, save our taxpayers millions and eliminate the 18-A energy tax from this year’s final state budget.”
