“This gas tax hike will have serious consequences,” Senator Bateman said. “Small businesses will be forced out of state, the price of goods will go up and many local jobs will disappear. Undoubtedly, it will be the families in our communities who pay the price for a poor decision made miles away in Trenton.

“I voted ‘no’ today because I believe it is our duty as public servants to vote with the needs and concerns of our constituents in mind. Thousands spoke out against this tax hike. It’s a shame that that so many of my fellow legislators chose not to listen to the people they represent.”
