PARAMUS- Senator Joseph Coniglio today said he has come up with a way to replenish the State’s Transportation Trust Fund without placing the financial burden on New Jersey residents.
“The New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund is almost broke, and it is time for us to come up with some financial solutions before the taxpayers are left to suffer,” said Senator Coniglio, D-Bergen. “The transportation system is the backbone of our State’s economy. We have to make finding a permanent funding source a priority because over 1.2 million new residents and 750,000 new jobs are estimated for the Garden State in the next 25 years. We need sufficient funding for the transportation infrastructure in order to guarantee our economic prosperity.”
