2. New Jersey Senate postpones vote on gas tax transportation plan
from News 12 New Jersey
From Aug. 1:
New Jersey's lawmakers have once again put off voting on a controversial plan to replenish the state's dwindling transportation trust fund. The New Jersey Senate went back to work in Trenton after a July recess, but faced a stalemate over a plan to raise New Jersey's gas tax by 23 cents in order to fund transportation projects. Projects to repair hundreds of roads and bridges across the state have been on hold since July, when the deadline to extend the transportation trust fund ran out.
