The pain of high fuel prices: U.S. Senators introduce a bill proposing fuel subsidies for fishermen

On July 9, 2008 Senator Lisa MURKOWSKI (Republican, Alaska) introduced a bill that would help commercial fishermen in Alaska and all over the United States offset high fuel prices by providing a temporary income tax credit for excessive fuel costs.

The full title of the bill is: "S. 3234. A bill to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide a temporary income tax credit for commercial fishermen to offset high fuel costs"
