“I strongly reject the premise that the legislation advanced today represents ‘tax fairness’ for all New Jersey families.

“That is certainly not the case for the tens of thousands of Ocean County commuters in my district who cannot afford to pay any more to live and work in this state.

“That’s why I chose to vote ‘NO’ today.

“I agree that we need to find a lasting solution to fund our transportation infrastructure, but asking hardworking New Jersey taxpayers to shoulder the burden is not the answer.”
