New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday that while there's consensus on the need to build a new Hudson River rail tunnel, the federal government needs to agree to pay "the lion's share" of the estimated $14 billion price tag.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, U.S. Sen. Cory Booker and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will sit down next week to discuss plans for replacing the century-old Hudson River tunnel crossing.
Jersey democrats continue to criticize Governor Christie, after the Congressional Government Accountability Office issued a report suggesting he may have miscalculated how much the Garden state would have to shell out for a new Hudson River rail tunnel.
Even as a report today by independent congressional investigators finds that Governor Christie misstated New Jersey's share of the costs for the Hudson River rail tunnel project, Christie reiterates that he would not send taxpayers a bill for the estimated cost overruns.
