Benson Statement on Proposed Transportation Spending

(TRENTON) – Assembly Transportation Chairman Daniel R. Benson (D-Mercer/Middlesex) released the following statement on Tuesday:

“I welcome the governor’s proposals on transportation spending. We need a thorough discussion of New Jersey’s transportation future if we’re to ensure a strong economy going forward.
