LETTER – Time for Legislature to Focus on TTF’s Future

 Assembly Republican Budget Officer Declan O’Scanlon, R-Monmouth, after hearing testimony from Transportation Commissioner Jamie Fox, today issued the following statement about the Transportation Trust Fund:

“It is time to put politics aside and sit down together to find an acceptable solution for maintaining New Jersey’s transportation infrastructure. We all know that transportation infrastructure is critical both for our economy and our quality of life.  As my Republican colleagues noted today, and as was universally agreed upon – as we move forward to fund our transportation needs in coming years we must take a hard look at our transportation costs. The public needs to understand that their money is being spent prudently. We owe it to taxpayers to exhaust every cost-saving option and maximize the value of every dollar expended.”
