AAA Statement on Transportation Trust Fund Passage

Posted: October 7th, 2016

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. 

The AAA Clubs of New Jersey—AAA North Jersey, AAA New Jersey Automobile Club, AAA Mid-Atlantic and AAA South Jersey—provide automotive, travel, insurance and financial services to more than two million members through 26 offices across the state. The AAA Clubs of New Jersey are affiliated with AAA, the not-for-profit, fully tax paying federation of automobile clubs, which serves as an advocate for motorists and travelers.
