Corzine seeks voter input on funding plan

| 7/31/2007

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine says he wants the voters to call the shots on some parts of a new state transportation funding plan.

Corzine hasn’t unveiled specific details of the plan yet, but Newsday quotes an aide as saying voters might be asked to approve a ballot issue that would toughen restrictions on state borrowing without voter approval.

Voters might also be asked to approve a measure that would assure that all money earned by a transportation plan would go exclusively to transportation needs, or buying down the state’s debt, Newsday reported.
