Steinhardt Statement On Gas Tax Hike

 In a Friday night news dump last week, Governor Murphy’s Treasury Department announced an automatic 9.3 cent/gallon gas tax increase.

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt is calling on Governor Murphy to put an immediate stop to this tax hike:

“If Governor Murphy can unilaterally change election law, unilaterally shut down small businesses, unilaterally order long term care facilities to take COVID positive patients, then he can certainly unilaterally suspend the implementation of this huge tax hike.  At this point, Governor Murphy owns every action of our state government,  including this gas tax hike.”
