In the News…

Representative Stephanie Murphy of Florida was among a group of legislators who broke from the pack and voted against a measure that would allegedly prevent gasoline price gouging. The Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act nevertheless passed the House in a 217-207 vote. 

In a statement, Representative Murphy said the price gouging bill “takes the wrong approach,” claiming that it “could further reduce supply” and worsen the current situation. 

“At best, this bill is a distraction that won’t actually address the problem. At worst, it could make the problem more severe,” she said. 

She cited comments from Larry Summers, who served as Treasury Secretary during the Clinton administration, and who said the bill would not reduce inflation but could “cause and contrive all kinds of shortages.”
