Sen. Menendez to announce help for NJ Transit
U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez will announce a major federal recovery plan that could help NJ Transit bridge a projected $300 million budget gap.
Sen. Menendez will be joined by Rep. Donald Payne and NJ Transit officials to unveil the plan Monday.
The plan would give NJ Transit $420 million in funding and could create about 4,000 jobs.
NJ Transit announced a proposal Friday to increase fares and cut service in an effort to reduce a growing budget deficit.
