Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) responded to Governor Christie’s comments to members of the construction trades union yesterday wherein he commented there is “no excuse” for Republicans to not have voted to authorize a 23-cent, billion-dollar gas tax increase earlier this year.

Residents and commuters joined Sen. Jennifer Beck at a rally in Tinton Falls in June to oppose a gas tax increase. (

“I will always stand up for what is right by my constituents, even in the face of pressure from the Governor and special interests. I have vocally opposed increases in the gas tax since my election to the Legislature in 2005. Residents in my district continue to be overtaxed and opposed to the billion-dollar gas tax scheme. Governor Christie ran for Governor on a platform of opposing new taxes and fees with the overwhelming support of Monmouth and Ocean counties. Our residents commute and bear the burden of this tax increase. I will continue to be a forceful advocate to decrease our tax burden here in the state. The bottom-line is the billion-dollar gas tax was not needed and no pressure from the Governor or special interests will make me waver in my position.”
