Governor Christie Vetoes Hotel Tax

Date: January 19, 2016 Last Edit: January 28, 2016

On Tuesday, January 19, 2016 Governor Christie used his
line-item veto authority to stop legislation that would have allowed county
governments to establish a 1 percent tax on hotel rooms within their borders.
This hotel tax was part of a broader
package of legislation
that deals with helping county freeholders raise
more revenue. The bill passed during the lame duck legislative session which is
historically known as a time when New Jersey lawmakers pass bills that raise
taxes and/or fees.

We appreciate Governor Christie’s veto of this hotel-tax, which
would have only further deterred travelers, who are already charged high state and
local hotel taxes, from staying in New Jersey.
