On Wednesday because NJ residents rose up and pushed back, we were able to defeat the proposed gas tax. On Friday, the legislature is going to take up the issue again, insisting on giving you the largest tax hike since the days of Jim Florio to the tune of $1.3 BILLION. The only way to stop it, is to call your legislators and tell them #NOGASTAX and if they vote yes, make sure they know, we will #RememberInNovember!

Sweeney’s bowing out from the gubernatorial race as you all barrage legislators with calls. You let him you know that he was damaged goods and he took your words to heart.

The numbers are EXTREMELY close for votes right now. To defeat it once again, we need another 4-5 votes. There's still time to call those legislators and tell them you don't want this tax!

As discussed on the show this morning, here’s who to target:

Senator Joe Kyrillos - 732- 671-3206

Seantor Dawn Addiego - 609-847-3600 or Tweet @8thDistrictLeg or through her Facebook page

Senator Bob Singer - 732-987-5669

Senator Shirley Turner- 609-323-7239

Senator Jim Whelan 609-383-1388

If you want to know who your local legislator is, here’s an easy way to find who they are and contact them. Click here, then find your town and click on that and as Jeff Deminski pointed out, it only takes a couple of clicks and a phone call to take care of.

AS always, here are other state legislators who you can call as well to express your displeasure for the proposed gas tax hike.
