United States Congressman Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ-2 has issued blistering comments about the upcoming increased fees on New Jersey roadways for the 3rd straight year.

Yet again, New Jerseyans are facing the repercussions of state officials playing politics by refusing to find real solutions to lower the costs of goods and services.

Instead of proposing ways to help the people of New
Jersey deal with 40-year-high inflation, Governor Murphy has decided that individuals should pay more. Congress has allocated hundreds of millions of dollars in infrastructure projects to states, including New Jersey, so there is absolutely no reason that tolls should be increasing during a recession.

While other states are devising ways to help their people survive this economic crisis, Governor Murphy and the state of New Jersey are exacerbating this dire situation by making it more expensive to travel, said Van Drew.

Van Drew also outlined that New Jersey families are hurting and are presently experiencing an increase in expenses of $726, each and every month, as a direct result of the current runaway inflation.

The American people are dealing with massive increases for food, energy and just about every product.

Van Drew believes that it is an outrage to increase fees on New Jersey residence during a recession.
