Deputy Speaker Wisniewski on NJDOT Announcement of State Farm’s Safety Service Patrol Sponsorship

(TRENTON) – Assembly Deputy Speaker John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex), chairman of the Assembly transportation committee, released the following statement on the announcement by the New Jersey Department of Transportation of a public-private partnership with State Farm in support of the department’s Safety Service Patrol:

“I want to join with the New Jersey Department of Transportation in welcoming State Farm’s sponsorship of the department’s Safety Service Patrol. I was proud to have sponsored the legislation that authorized this partnership and to have worked with the company to shepherd it through the Legislature.
“At a time when the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund’s gas tax revenue is fully dedicated to debt service and the state must rely on additional borrowing, higher tolls and increasing general revenues to fund our transportation infrastructure, New Jersey must be creative in pursuing any and every opportunity to generate revenue for our transportation needs.”
