05 Mar: Turner/Buono Measure Would Encourage New Jersey Drivers To Purchase More Efficient Vehicles

TRENTON – The Senate Environment Committee approved legislation today sponsored by Senators Shirley Turner and Barbara Buono that would create tax incentives to encourage the purchase of more fuel efficient vehicles.

“We can no longer afford to have gas-guzzlers crowding our roads,” said Senator Turner, D-Mercer. “And now that technologies such as hybrid engines and fuel cells are readily available, we should no longer accept it, either. New Jersey will become a national leader in the number of fuel efficient cars on our roads.”
