Road to Repair Urges New Jerseyans to Vote “Yes” on Ballot Initiative 2 this November 8th
A “Yes” Vote Will Ensure all Gas Tax Revenue is Constitutionally Dedicated to Funding Transportation
It is imperative that New Jersey voters vote “Yes” on Question 2 this November 8th. This ballot initiative ensures all revenue from the gas tax will be constitutionally dedicated to the Transportation Trust Fund, allowing the state to finally get to work on rebuilding New Jersey’s crumbling roads and bridges.
The successful passage of Question 2 will prevent Trenton from misusing funds meant for transportation infrastructure and provide a sustainable and steady source of funding for our infrastructure so that Trenton will no longer be forced to borrow money for the TTF, which was the reason the fund went bankrupt this past summer, resulting in the $3.5 billion transportation shutdown.
If Question 2 does not pass, the future of New Jersey’s transportation system will be thrown back into limbo, and politicians in Trenton will continue piling up crushing debt.
Given that New Jersey has the 8th worst bridges in the nation and road conditions that cost the average motorist more than $2,600 a year in operating costs, this dedicated source of funding will provide a much-needed safety and economic boost for New Jerseyans across the state.
Improved infrastructure means less congestion and traffic for New Jersey commuters and improved efficiency for businesses. Voting “Yes” on Question 2 will also require the out-of-staters who use New Jersey’s roads every day to finally pay their fair share when they fill-up in New Jersey.
