NJ Senate Adds $400 Million to This Year’s Capital Transportation Projects Budget

Burlington County Times reports, “The state Senate voted 36-1 [on March 13] to approve legislation to appropriate $400 million toward capital transportation projects during the current fiscal year, raising the projected transportation spending to about $2 billion.” Governor Chris Christie requested the supplemental appropriation (made possible by a gas tax increase) during his budget address last month, the newspaper notes.
