JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Calling it one of the most foolish proposals he’s seen in six years, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop urged lawmakers Sunday not to mess with overnight PATH service.
The suggestion to eliminate the service between 1 and 5 a.m. on weeknights is buried on page 81 of a 100-page report from a special panel formed by Govs. Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo to reform the Port Authority.
The governors both vetoed reform legislation that was almost unprecedentedly approved by Republicans and Democrats in both states, instead asking lawmakers to consider the special panel’s recommendations, which they feel is more comprehensive.
“Candidly, I was surprised and a little bit disappointed,” New Jersey State Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi told CBS2’s Steve Langford.
