(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson/Bergen) released the following statement Wednesday on the state Department of Transportation and NJ Transit projects funded through the Transportation Trust Fund that are subject to a shutdown:
“This is an unfortunate situation that re-emphasizes the need for a transportation funding solution as soon as possible. We cannot allow this to continue. Public safety and livelihoods are at risk.
“The Assembly has acted to fund transportation, keep laborers on the job and reinvigorate our economy. All sides must work cooperatively toward finding a solution everyone can agree to so it becomes law sooner rather than later.”
