II. Update on Statewide Ballot Questions

Public Question 1, or the “New Jersey Allowance for Casinos in Two Additional Counties Amendment” regarding the allowance of two additional casino was voted down overwhelmingly by New Jersey voters.   With almost 99% of precincts reporting, almost 78% of voters, or 2,231,133, voted no.

On the other hand, Public Question 2, the “New Jersey Dedication of All Gas Tax Revenues to Transportation Amendment,” which dedicates all gas tax revenues for transportation passed by a 54% (1,507,097) to 46% (1,301,192).   This constitutional dedication of revenues assures long term infrastructure funding, particularly for transportation funding to local governments, which was doubled under the recently enacted Transportation Trust Fund Reauthorization.
