WISNIEWSKI STATEMENT ON TUNNEL PROJECT SETTLEMENT

(TRENTON) – Assembly Transportation Chairman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) released the following statement Friday on the settlement between the Christie administration and the Federal Transportation Administration:

“While the governor may tout his settlement as a win for New Jersey, the fact is the cancellation of the commuter tunnel project cost New Jersey billions in federal funds and tens of thousands of jobs.
“Every commuter stuck in the tunnel or delayed on their way to and from work knows how important this project was to our economy and quality of life. The governor can brag all he wants but there is no getting around the fact that New Jersey lost when the governor canceled the tunnel.”
