Freiman on Governor’s Release of Frozen Funding

Hillsborough to Receive $500,000 Allocation for Vital Construction Projects

Assemblyman Roy Freiman (D-Somerset, Mercer, Middlesex, Hunterdon) issued the following statement in response to the Administration’s release of frozen state spending funds today:

“I am pleased by the Governor and his Administration for their decision to unfreeze funds allocated within the state budget for FY2020.

“With $500,000, part of the $121 million in critical funding released today, Hillsborough will finally be able to start breaking ground on construction projects vital to the public safety of its residents and commuters.

“Among the planned construction will be much needed work on Brown Avenue and Route 206, areas heavily traveled by trucks and large vehicles, to help divert traffic coming out of industrial areas and lessen disruptions in residential areas.

“As a 20-year resident of Hillsborough myself, I see today as a huge win for our community and for counties all across the State.”
