Governor Phil Murphy Statement On Senator Schumer’s Gateway Program Legislation


Governor Murphy:

“The Gateway Program is critically important to the hundreds of thousands of New Jerseyans who rely on the Cross-Hudson crossings and any disruption would cripple our regional and national economies. The political gridlock preventing its Federal approval is unacceptable. New Jersey has acted as a willing partner throughout the process, and stands ready to provide $600 million in state funding to replace the Portal Bridge.”

“We are all acutely aware of the risks associated with a failure to complete these projects, and I will continue to call on the Trump Administration to join with us as true partners to prevent a needless catastrophe. I applaud Senator Schumer for his leadership and advocacy, and I look forward to working with the New York and New Jersey delegations, and all local partners, to move Gateway forward.”
