AAA Statement on Transportation Trust Fund Passage
The AAA Clubs of New Jersey applaud the Senate and Assembly for passing a long term, sustainable transportation funding plan.
"Today's vote will make our roads safer, alleviate congestion and put us in the path to an improved transportation infrastructure network," said Cathleen Lewis, director of Public Affairs for AAA Northeast.
“Now that the funding plan has passed, New Jersey residents must turn their attention to ensuring that the gas tax revenues remain dedicated to their intended purpose of paying for our transportation infrastructure,” Lewis added.
This November, voting YES on Public Question 2 will restore the public's trust in the Transportation Trust Fund by ensuring that gas tax dollars cannot be diverted from transportation needs to patch other revenue shortfalls.
