first_img Categories: News,Wentworth News A new law sponsored by Rep. Jason Wentworth of Clare will eliminate a costly administrative burden for marine fuel users in Michigan.Wentworth’s legislation to simplify the process for exempting marine fuel users from Michigan’s motor fuel tax was signed today and becomes Public Act 55 of 2018.“This new law will help protect Michigan jobs connected to marine fuel distribution by reducing bureaucracy and saving time for everyone involved,” Wentworth said. “We want to ensure vessels fuel up here in our state, rather than in a neighboring state or in Canada.”Previous Michigan law called for users of marine fuel to pay the 26.3-cent per gallon motor fuel tax and then apply for reimbursement from the state Treasury. Wentworth’s new law replaces the refund with an upfront exemption, which lowers the initial costs and saves time and paperwork for businesses dealing with marine fuel such as Bunker C or Navy Special.The fuel isn’t used on roadways, so it is not subject to the motor fuel tax.### 06Mar Rep.
