New Jersey lawmakers were set to vote today on a deal to raise the state's gas tax by 23 cents a gallon, but the vote has been rescheduled for Friday. The state has the second-lowest gas tax in the country behind Alaska.
The deal was reached between Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who had resisted a tax hike, and Democratic lawmakers, and it establishes a transportation trust fund. The deal would also decrease the state's sales tax.
Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with CNN's Maggie Lake about the deal.
