Both houses passed legislation last week to increase New Jersey’s gas tax to 37.5 cents a gallon. Once signed by the governor, the legislation will mean an end to Christie’s executive order to shut down TTF projects. Voters must also approve a referendum on the November 8th ballot in order for the funds to be constitutionally dedicated to the Transportation Trust Fund.
New Jersey lawmakers postponed a vote scheduled for today that would raise the gas tax by 23 cents and fund the NJ Transportation Trust Fund for eight years. The new vote is scheduled for Friday.
