Jon Corzine's Extra Special Talent of Screwing the Little Guy
Some people just have a talent.
The rate for passenger vehicles traveling the Turnpike’s length during peak traffic hours will be as much as $13.85 in cash, up from $9.05 currently. The maximum charge for tractor- trailer rigs with six or more axles also will rise 53 percent, to $56.85.
The rates were approved in 2008 under Corzine, a Democrat. Republican Governor Chris Christie, who defeated Corzine in 2009, said the tolls are impossible to roll back because the state sold bonds based on the anticipated revenue.
“This is the last, I hope, one of the last vestiges of Jon Corzine’s fiscal management of the state of New Jersey (STONJ1),” Christie, 49, told WOR-AM radio’s John Gambling today.
