Infrastructure investments have long been an economic engine for our country. Building American roads, bridges and rail lines helped pull us out of the Great Depression, and revived our stalled economy. It's time to return to that notion that if we commit the resources necessary, we can put New Jersey residents back to work and strengthen our transportation and infrastructure networks for the long-term safety and productivity of our state. A strong infrastructure is essential to our ability to move goods and services throughout our state, and therefore grow our economy. I have worked across party lines to provide adequate funding and innovative financially sound solutions to achieve this goal.
