Surplus should fund NJ Transit says Bramnick

TRENTON, N.J. – The state treasurer announced this week that tax collections exceeded expectations resulting in $484 million in unexpected revenue for the current fiscal year. Today, Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick is calling on the governor to use the surplus to increase funding for NJ Transit by $250 million and return the remainder to New Jersey’s taxpayers.

“We have an opportunity to substantially increase our investment in NJ Transit, improve service for commuters and provide tax relief to our residents,” said Bramnick. “Governor Murphy should join me by immediately earmarking the surplus for NJ Transit and tax relief.”
