New Jersey Voters Approve Diesel Emissions Reduction Plan
Posted on November 10, 2005
New Jersey voters have passed a change to the state’s constitution to pay for a diesel emissions reduction program. The measure was passed 56 to 44 percent. The constitutional change will divert state revenue raised from an existing tax on businesses, to pay for technologies such as diesel particulate filters for use on publicly owned or operated diesel trucks and buses. The program will not involve privately owned diesel vehicles.
