Sen. Robert Menendez is in New Jersey rallying support for a transportation bill he says will bring record levels of funding to the state.

The long-term funding bill was passed overwhelmingly by the Senate in March and next will be considered by the House. Formal negotiations begin this Tuesday.

Supporters of the bill say it will create or preserve two million jobs and help make crucial investments into New Jersey’s transportation infrastructure. They say New Jersey will get more than $500 million in federal transit funding without increasing federal spending, through cutting waste and eliminating earmarks.

Menendez met with economic and transportation experts in New Brunswick Friday afternoon.
