NJ Chamber of Commerce President Tom Bracken's Statement on
Gateway Project Funding
The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce applauds U.S. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen for his leadership in securing $900 million in funding for the Gateway Project, which will serve to ease the bottleneck that impedes travel to and from Manhattan.
Congressman Frelinghuysen has delivered a much needed investment in our state's economic viability.
In order to grow economically and prosper, New Jersey must have the kind of modern infrastructure that this project will provide. This is exactly this type of investment that will allow our state to attract and retain the businesses that power our state's economic engine.
The N.J. Chamber and its members thank Congressman Frelinghuysen for his vision and leadership, and we ask the members of New Jersey's Senate delegation as well as the President to follow the congressman's lead in championing this essential investment in New Jersey's and our region's future.
