Consider just one of those assets, transportation. The fund that pays for improving and expanding New Jersey's roads, bridges and public transit will go broke in just over five months because the state hasn't come to grips with a gas tax that's second-lowest in the nation and hasn't been increased in over two decades. No new revenues for the fund mean no new projects in a state with some of the worst roads in the nation and a hobbled mass transit system. This is a full-blown emergency, producing a strange-bedfellows coalition of business, labor, environmental, planning and other groups around a strong and immediate response. Legislative leaders have recognized the magnitude of the problem and the need to find substantial new revenues. Not Governor Christie. His recent 43-minute State of the State address included nary a word about the looming bankruptcy.
