According to NYFB President
Charles Wille, “The exemption on
the diesel and residual fuels,
which was Governor Cnomo’s ini
tiative, has passed the Senate.
However, the refund on gasoline
is another story. Farmer letters
could play a critical role in secur

With the legislature only weeks
away from adjournment and the
state budget still unsettled, Farm
Bureau is urging every farmer to
drop a note to Assembly Speaker

Wille labeled the refund on
gasoline a bread and butter issue
for family fanners. “Small family
farmers often have older equip

diesel. A refund from the PBT for
the on-farm use of gasoline would
give smaller New York farm oper

Farmers in every Northeast
state, except New York and Con
necticut, ait free of fuel taxes on
the on-farm use of petroleum pro
ducts. Wille said that New York
lawmakers should grant this
refund, if they expect New York
farmers to stay competitive with
their neighbors and remain a
viable part of local economies
across the state.
