(TRENTON) – Assembly Transportation Chairman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) released the following statement Tuesday:

“In deference to the leadership being shown by Secretary LaHood to keep the new Hudson River commuter rail tunnel moving forward, I am postponing Thursday’s Assembly committee hearing on this issue
“The next two weeks are vitally important to New Jersey’s economic and transportation future.
