EDISON - Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) are proposing that tolls on cars using E-ZPass increase by $1.50 in September and by an additional 75 cents each December from 2012-2015.

The joint proposal also states that those who pay cash will be subject to the same increase, in addition to a $2 penalty rounded up to the nearest whole dollar. Port Authority of New York and New Jersey officials are scheduled to vote on the toll hikes tomorrow.

The Port Authority's original plan would have doubled tolls for some drivers from $8.00 to $17.00 by 2014.
