Gov. Christie answers questions about toll-increase plan

BURLINGTON CITY - Drivers are up in arms over a possible $4 increase in tolls over the Hudson River. Today, Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) answered questions about what can be done for commuters.

At a meeting in Burlington City, the governor explained that the proposal can be vetoed, but "the Port made it very clear in the announcement on Friday that would mean that hundreds of projects would have to be stopped and thousands of people would be laid off and that progress on the World Trade Center site would slow if not stop."

Christie says he and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) need more information before deciding what, if any, toll increase would be appropriate.

A series of public hearings have been scheduled to give you a chance to weigh in on the proposed toll increase. Information on toll-increase hearings.
