New Jersey

THE GAS TAX AMENDMENT, would dedicate all revenue received from the state’s gas tax towards transportation projects. The state currently allocates 3 cents of its 13.5 cent gas tax towards other portions of the budget. Dedicating all the revenue from the gasoline tax toward transportation projects makes sense, provided the New Jersey Legislature does not try to raise other taxes to make up for the lost revenue. Likewise, this additional revenue should not be used to fund ill conceived light rail projects or other similar ventures.
