Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) hosted a rally in Tinton Falls on Monday to oppose a proposed increase in New Jersey’s gas tax of 20 to 40 cents per gallon. She was joined Erica Jedynak, State Director of Americans for Prosperity, and over 50 concerned citizens who wanted to have their voices heard.

With five exits on the Garden State Parkway, Tinton Falls is home to many commuters who drive to work and would be hit hard by a gas tax increase.

“We’ve already had thousands of people sign our ‘No Gas Tax Increase’ petition online, but we need to do more to demonstrate the massive opposition to higher gas taxes,” said Beck. “Many who live along and commute on the Garden State Parkway will be hit especially hard. If you oppose paying hundreds a year more at the pump, I urge you to contact the legislative leadership in Trenton and make your voice heard loud and clear.”

While some in the Legislature have proposed increasing the gas tax by up to 40 cents per gallon to replenish the state’s Transportation Trust Fund (TTF), Beck has proposed a detailed 7-year transportation plan that is fully funded with NO gas tax increase.

“With the TTF set run out of funds for new transportation projects over the summer, the Legislature will need to adopt a plan in the coming weeks – perhaps by the end of June,” added Beck. “We must take this opportunity now to speak out and insist that legislators listen their constituents and not special interests. All concerned residents should visit my website to sign the petition in opposition to the gas tax increase at www.nogastaxnj.com and call my office to kept apprised of any developments. My office phone number is 732-933-1591.”
