New Jersey needs to increase the gas tax to fund road and bridge repairs and infrastructure improvements, but the 23 cent a gallon increase coupled with a $600 mil. tax cut for our wealthiest residents is not the way to do it.
Also, the cost of transportation work in New Jersey is many time more costly than all other states.
Here's what must be done:
1. No tax cut for the wealthiest NJ residents.
2. Reforms to cut costs of construction and to include citizen oversight of spending of government agencies like the Port Authority and NJTransit.
3. Phase in gas tax increases over three years so motorists aren't hit with sticker shock and reforms to cut costs and include citizen oversight are enacted.
We need to fund road and bridge repairs and improvements but their's a wrong way and a right way. The current proposal is the wrong way.
