NJ AFL-CIO Applauds Progress on Transportation Funding

New Jersey State AFL-CIO President Charles Wowkanech issued the following statement on the bipartisan, long-term funding plans for the Transportation Trust Fund announced Friday:

“The New Jersey State AFL-CIO has been working for many years with leadership of both houses of the Legislature, our building and construction trade unions, transit unions, coalition partners and stakeholders to advance a long-term solution to funding our state’s transportation and infrastructure needs. Today, we are pleased to finally see progress being made on long-term transportation funding.”

“On behalf of one million working men and women and their families who live and work in our state, we urge the governor to engage in a substantive discussion on these proposals immediately and to take action as soon as possible to replenish the Transportation Trust Fund.”

“Our infrastructure is a key driver of our economic prosperity, and is vital to creating family sustaining jobs and a good quality of life for our residents. The citizens of this state have been in limbo for too long on how our roads, rails and bridges are going to be paid for – it’s time for a bipartisan solution to be enacted.”
