    "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."
    Little did Ben Franklin know, that the country he helped establish (that was partly founded on tax-evasion) would be taxed to death.

    Another ridiculous plan by the left! NJ residents are taxed enough and we don't get any say. Who even heard of this proposal? Where are these taxes going anyway? Who will benefit from them? I don't believe this will encourage new business and residents to move here. Revolt or leave the state.

    It's hard enough to live in New Jersey as it is on little based pay now they want to tax us homeowners as well on this rain tax well if that's the case I'll gladly hand over my water bill and take the tax. U want to add a rain(water) tax when us homeowners are already paying to use water now were gonna have to pay for that on top of when it rains thats bull. I am so against this bill and pray that it does not get passed fully.

    How do the people not rise up in revolt?

    Ten years ago I left my native New England for Tennessee. I was worried, what with the Rednecks and all. Now I feel such gratitude for the opportunity to spend the last thirty or so years of my life in a state that does not have the arrogance to think that all human activity within their borders is subject to taxation and regulation. PLEASE read the Constitution. Almost all of these activities are illegal. With a couple of additional Supreme Court nominations by Donald, this arrogance will be swept aside for the rest of my short lifetime. Hallelujah! God is good!

    Just declare bankruptcy and be done with this hole. When is this ponzi scheme going to blow up in our faces? Hopefully when I retire. It will be the best retirement gift.
    P.S. Democrats blow ass!

    Use the senior tax freeze, that you never give out. NJ wastes money on programs that people are entitled to and never get.

  • LanceBurger - 6 months ago

    We already pay a rain tax in Cleveland Ohio thanks to the Dem run county . Costs me $9.00 a month added to my sewer bill .

    First Gov. Corzine and now this guy. Its like getting punched in the face and saying "Thank you may I have another!"

    Let's just divide up the country and let the liberals / leftists / socialists and the Decommios create their own Utopia that they are desperately trying to jam down our throats.

    New Jersey has become one of the most punishing, mis-managed, greedy, soul less places to live in America. Government needs a muzzle.

  • Robert Gerundo - 6 months ago

    That's why I left New Jersey after 50 years........they tax you to death and you can't even go for a drive without paying a toll. I came to Arizona and now pay about 80% less in taxes to be in a nicer location. You can keep New Jersey, I hate it even when I visit!!

  • cary carmack - 6 months ago

    Houston voters passed a runoff tax. It was setup as a "mil" tax. The realty is that the voters had to actually vote the law in. Now that law law has been voted in, the elected officials get to decide when to go up on the rate and how and where to spend the money, not the voters. I believe that some of the money has been spent on streets and parks. When Hurricane /flood Harvey hit Houston, we still flooded. You taxes are usually just another point of leverage and power for the politicians. Hold their feet to the fire...demand accountability...!!!

    I don't see how a tax helps lessen the effects of the salt, nor will a tax change anything in the environment, well maybe to buy fuel for Al Gore's 767 to fly around the world calling for more taxes to make the populace poorer and ole Alzie more rich.

  • Martin - 6 months ago

    Glad we moved out of NJ 12 years ago. What a corrupt state! That's all I need to say.

  • Henry - 6 months ago

    This would be a tax on businesses with paved surfaces, not on homeowners or for when it rains.
    I see none of these commenters actually read the article, which barely reports this situation clearly as it is, thanks to the clickbait title.

  • Tom - 6 months ago

    Forgot to mention that two years straight that we had drought the tax stayed in place...

  • James - 6 months ago

    The politians are once again killing the goose who laid the golden egg. They pass zoning that let's housing and commercial property to be devveloped to the max, with the hope of collecting more a d more taxes but now there is no place for the rainwater to go! Really, it took this long to realiize that you can't develope and pave paradise without dire environmental consequences. And that moron, Aka, Murphy, will sign anything that gives him more funding to give to the downtrodden. BULLSHIT

  • Tom - 6 months ago

    They have this in Virginia- the tax started out at 15$ per year as they told us it was only a minor issue and not to worry about it. Three years later it was up to 150$ and going up every year after that- it is insane nonsense and the people should fight this before NJ does the same thing. People don;t even believe me when I tell them this, we have a rain tax- but Va is a tax insane state as well- from satellite dish tax to dog and bicycle taxes.
    I wanted to change the slogan to
    Virginia is for Tax Lovers

    By by NJ...can't wait to move out. You can take your Democrat controlled state of theft by political strangulation and shove it.

  • Ramon Caruso - 6 months ago

    And this is why we're leaving New Jersey before the summer rains come this is what we get for electing Democrats

    Good thing we don't have BS tax in Wa state, most would be bankrupt.

  • Melinda Murray - 6 months ago

    Where I live the water company had 44 million in a surplus fund and 17 million in another. That was about 3 years ago. I can't imagine its much less now. It may be more,
    If that be the case we should be allowed to collect rain water and filter it for gardens, laundry ect.

  • Bill - 6 months ago

    If so, tax government on all the roads where salt is being used ,oh wait - it's us - the tax payers ,so we will tax ourselves with tax which government assign on this tax of the tax and tax of it ,this needs to end ,just hike tax on tobacco and other crap which nobody needs (not alcohol - I like alcohol)

  • Sandi - 6 months ago

    No wonder people are moving out of state.This bill is horrible. We can't predict when it's going to rain in . North Jersey and not in Cape May or Wildwood.its saying let's take the salt water out of the ocean.This is really, I can see how I will vote when all of you come up for reelection..

  • Jack - 6 months ago
