Our LIGRA Board, Executive Director and our Lobbyist had spent days interviewing candidates for the New State Assembly and Senate. We interviewed incumbents as well as non-incumbents. The objective of this yearly screenings is to determine which candidates support issues of importance to our industry.

T also get their position on these points

  1. Setting a flat rate pre-paid tax on gasoline. This would eliminate the need to do a monthly reconciliation
  2. A continue suspension of all state’s sales tax on gasoline while the price of gas is over $3.00 a gallon
  3. Putting into the State budget an increase in the commission rate on the sale of lottery tickets
  4. Allowing the DMV to increase the vehicle inspection fee for licensed inspection stations
  5. The sale of vape products to ADULTS both menthol and flavored
