Group pushes alternative to Corzine's toll hike plan

A new plan is being floated as an alternative to Gov. Jon Corzine's (D-N.J.) plan to raise highway tolls.The plan calls for charging tolls for drivers on routes 78 and 80. A group representing industrial park developers is pushing the plan, claiming it could keep increases down on the roads that already have tolls.Most residents told News 12 New Jersey that they didn't support the plan. One driver, however, said he thought it was a fair way to balance the budget.Another alternative to the governor's plan is to increase the gas tax, which has also met resistance. New Jersey currently has the third lowest gas tax in the country.Related information: Toll plan unhappiness not soothed by gas tax proposal
