There’s a truly terrible idea gaining steam in Trenton. Our policy makers are considering tying a gas tax increase to a repeal or reduction in the state’s inheritance and estate tax. And they’d blow a $800 million hole in the budget while they’re at it, inevitably leading to more devastating cuts to schools and services. This makes absolutely no sense.
Here’s your chance to stop this deal before it even happens. Email your legislators in Trenton and tell them not to make a bad TTF deal that cuts taxes for the wealthy. Instead, they should be considering tying any gas tax increase to assistance for low-income families who will be hit the hardest by any increase.
