The Assembly and Senate Budget Committees approved the Transportation Trust Fund plan, which includes a gas tax increase, but Gov. Christie will likely veto the measure and it's unclear if there are enough votes to override that decision.
Sen. Jennifer Beck was at a rally in Freehold to speak out against a proposal to replenish the Transportation Trust Fund with a 23-cent gas tax increase. She has outlined a plan for the TTF that wouldn't raise the gas tax.
