During an Alliance For Action Transportation Conference in Trenton today, the Governor said lawmakers need to approve the $1.6 billion that’s called for in his budget – to spend on transportation projects and programs – because it will, “Enhance the quality of life in our state and it provides the foundation for long-term economic growth.”

Christie also said approving the funding for transportation infrastructure repairs and upgrades will result in, “real working families being able to put food on the table and pay their mortgages, this is about businesses being able to grow and expand and create more opportunity in our state- this is about making our state an attractive place for people to continue to live and to want to come and move to.”

The state budget must be adopted by June 30th.
