Codey: Keeping An Open Mind To Lesniak’s Turnpike Leasing Bill

TRENTON – Senate President Richard J. Codey made the following comments today concerning the proposal by Senator Raymond J. Lesniak, D-Union, to lease the operations of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority to a private company or to the Authority itself.

“I’ve always said we have to keep our options open and explore all viable opportunities when it comes to the revenue potential of our State’s assets. Senator Lesniak’s proposal should generate a good conversation on a creative way to improve our fiscal situation. We shouldn’t reject out of hand any ideas that could lead to a $15 billion reduction in our debt obligations.”
