Vote Paves Way for Critical Transportation Projects, Puts People Back to Work

Senator Anthony Bucco (R-25), a member of the Joint Budget Oversight Committee, praised the committee for finally voting to authorize the Transportation Trust Fund Authority to make use of $1.315 billion of unused bonding capacity to fund critical transportation projects. He said that the vote was given added importance by a new report issued by Transportation for America which cited the poor state of North Jersey bridges.

“The report issued by Transportation for America is further proof that we can no longer delay the funding of critical transportation projects, including bridge repair and replacement,” said Bucco. “I am glad that members of both parties were able to break through the legislative gridlock that was preventing us from getting to work on making our transportation infrastructure safe. Just as importantly, this funding will help create new jobs for many in the construction industry who have been hit especially hard by the down economy.”

Senate Republican Budget Officer Tony Bucco issued the following statement regarding the Senate Budget and Appropriation Committee’s hearing today on infrastructure problems at the Motor Vehicle Commission:

“These problems were not created overnight; they are the result of years of neglect of the state’s IT system.
