Senate Republicans Propose $100 Gas Rebates

April 28, 2006

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- In response to public outcry over high gasoline prices, Senate Republicans yesterday proposed a $100 gasoline rebate check for millions of taxpayers. However, the plan will stir considerable controversy because it is tied to drilling in an Alaska wildlife refuge, the AP reported. Majority Leader Bill Frist, who called the proposal "a bold package that will give consumers some relief," said he hoped the Senate would vote on the proposal next Thursday. Democrats are developing their own set of proposals to offset the spike in gasoline prices, including a 60-day suspension of the 18.4-cent federal gasoline tax and the 24-cent a gallon diesel tax.
