Months after Gov. Christie scuttled plans for a new Hudson River rail tunnel, Sen. Schumer is calling it a terrible decision, not just now, but for generations to come.
Christie said he hasn’t heard directly from U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood on reducing the tab for the Hudson River tunnel he killed in October.
NJ Transit has asked the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority to let it spend $75 million for 100 multilevel coaches.
Christie used Twitter to invite the late-night comedian to get a personal tour. Christie then made fun of Fallon’s version of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run.”
