    U.S. GAO - Commuter Rail: Potential Impacts and Cost Estimates for the Cancelled Hudson River Tunnel Project

    The project would have helped meet the projected increase in travel demand and improved mobility by doubling the number of daily peak period trains, and significantly increasing daily trips between New Jersey and Manhattan—from about 174,000 without the project to 254,000 with the project by 2030—while reducing transfers and station crowding and improving reliability of service.
    The project potentially would have generated economic activity in the region in the form of jobs and income, business activity, and increased home values, but many economic effects were hard to predict with certainty. For example, the extent to which the project would shift the location of economic activity, versus providing additional net economic activity, is uncertain.
    The project was estimated to have created limited but mostly positive environmental effects—in particular, improved air quality—and included measures to mitigate negative effects such as noise and storm water runoff.

    Mr. Christie also misstated New Jersey’s share of the costs: he said the state would pay 70 percent of the project; the report found that New Jersey was paying 14.4 percent.

    I understand that Chrispie is twice the man I am, but lying and costing a state thousands of jobs and an economic future is a "no-no".

    Well, then you are kind of an idiot.

    The cities that are going to move ahead are the ones that invest in the infrastructure.

    I visited Cleveland a few weeks ago, and if you want to see a city that is dying, go there.

    In July of 2009, McConnell told CNN that “The stimulus was a big mistake. I think we can fairly safely declare it now a failure.” Two months later he signed five letters requesting funds from the Department of Transportation for a variety of stimulus projects, including a railroad rehabilitation program that he said could “attract industry, create jobs, and move goods through areas underserved by national highways

    Mitch McConnell is a "libtard"?

    No, you are just a plain "tard".

    How come Republicans don't have a clue what their leaders are up to? Can't they see passed Obama's skin color? Seems they can't.

    I'm sure you agree with 90% of Republicans, "Education must be the first to go". After all, did it help you in any way?

    Lefty lie, much?

    Read the report. There was no agreement on who paid cost overruns, for example.

    Christie would have been nuts to pursue any deal shoved thru by Corzine and his Democratic crime syndicate.
