Senator Rice Blasts NJ Transit for Planned Ferry Deal Vote on Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday

Senator Rice Blasts NJ Transit for Planned Ferry Deal Vote on Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday
 
TRENTON – Senator Ronald L. Rice today issued the following statement on the NJ Transit meeting scheduled to be held on Monday, January 15, which is the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday:
“It is appalling that NJ Transit has scheduled a meeting on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day of national significance and when all of government will be closed, to vote to acquire a site from New York Waterway only to lease it back to the same entity. There are serious questions regarding this deal, not the least of which is, ‘What is the rush?’
“The board has not presented a detailed plan or alternatives for this proposal, and it is highly suspicious that it has scheduled a non-emergent vote on a holiday, which happens to be the day before a new governor takes office. It would be unconscionable for NJ Transit and a slap in the face to New Jersey residents to move forward with its Monday meeting on this non-emergent matter. The only thing that makes this an ‘emergency’ is the desire to ram it through without transparency, appropriate public input and before Governor-elect Murphy takes office.”
