Wayne Winegarden Discusses the Cost Benefits of Eliminating Wisconsin’s Minimum Markup Law in the Madison Reporter
PRI senior fellow in business and economics Wayne Winegarden was interviewed by the Madison Reporter on the cost benefits of eliminating Wisconsin’s minimum markup law than a gas tax holiday.
“Eliminating the minimum markup law would create a healthier competitive environment and have beneficial cost implications in the longer-run than a gas tax holiday,” Winegarden said. “Further, the elimination of the tax has implications for the maintenance budgets for roads and highways. Eliminating minimum markups creates a more efficient pricing environment with long-term benefits and no broader cost offset (other than the elimination of protected margins).”
