Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 435 - This act establishes a five cent per gallon motor fuel tax on propane fuel used to propel motor vehicles, to be increased to seventeen cents per gallon by January 1, 2025. Owners and operators of propane-fueled vehicles may continue to apply for and use alternative fuel decals in lieu of paying the motor fuel tax. If the owner or operator of a propane-fueled vehicle bearing an alternative fuel decal refuels at an unattended propane refueling station at which the motor fuel tax is collected at the point of sale, such owner or operator shall not be eligible for a refund of such tax paid.

This act is identical to HCS/HB 694 (2017), is substantially similar to provisions contained in CCS/SB 8 (2017) and HCS/SCS/SB 399 (2017), and is similar to HB 579 (2017).
