33% Hike in Down Economy Hurts Seniors and Families

Senator Michael Doherty, a member of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement urging enactment of a program that will provide toll discounts for local residents who are impacted by the recently enacted toll hikes on Delaware River bridges.

“A 33% toll hike was not the right course of action to impose on working families and seniors during hard economic times. The Bridge Commission historically had a program that allowed local residents who relied on the bridges to receive discounts. I am calling on the Commission to issue coupons or tokens, as they did in the past, to offset the recent increase.”

Says Plan Makes More Sense than Cancelled ARC Tunnel, Billions Cheaper for NJ Taxpayers

Senator Joe Pennacchio (R-26) said that a proposal that reportedly is being considered to extend New York City’s Number 7 subway line to the Secaucus Junction rail station would provide mass transit in the region with a much needed boost in capacity, provide commuters with increased flexibility and save New Jersey taxpayers billions of dollars relative to the cancelled ARC tunnel project.

“Unlike the ARC tunnel project, which Governor Christie rightly cancelled last year, the extension of the Number 7 subway line to Secaucus Junction makes sense for New Jersey,” said Pennacchio. “While the ARC tunnel would have sent riders to a new station deep under Macy’s basement that connected to nothing else, train riders connecting to the Number 7 line at Secaucus Junction would immediately be tied into the whole New York City subway system. This makes practical sense for New Jersey commuters in a way that the ARC tunnel never did.”
