New Jersey gas-tax showdown postponed until Friday

On Wednesday, final votes in the New Jersey Assembly and Senate on the 23-cent gasoline tax hike to fill the tank of the Transportation Trust Fund had to be pushed off until Friday
due a procedural issue.

Opponents hope the delay will give residents time to light up lawmakers' phones and emails with demands that they vote

NO on the legislative package.

Potential Democratic candidates for governor, Ray Lesniak and John Wizniewski, are out front in opposing the fuel hike and the accompanying elimination of the inheritance tax.

Senate President Steve Sweeney, a prominent candidate for governor on the 'D' side, is for the package.
