The Senate Transportation Committee approved the turnpike toll rollback on a strict party line vote. Tolls are scheduled to rise next January by an average of 90 cents per ride. That money was earmarked by former Governor Jon Corzine for the ARC Tunnel Project. Since Governor Christie has killed the tunnel project Democrats believe he should cancel the scheduled toll hike. Republicans argue that the turnpike bonds already sold are backed in part by that toll hike.
