(MISSOURINET) –  Two state lawmakers are trying to reduce the pain at the gas pump. Representatives Travis Fitzwater of Holts Summit and Adam Schwadron of St. Charles are proposing to give Missourians a one-time six-month tax holiday on all motor fuel sales.

Fitzwater, a Republican, says Missourians are struggling through inflation and increasing costs of gas.

The Missouri Department of Transportation says the bill could result in a reduction of transportation funding of about 1.3-billion in state and federal dollars. A Missouri House committee has not yet voted on the bills.
