Josh Gottheimer on Technology

 

 


Each dollar of infrastructure spending benefits us by $2

The American Society for Civil Engineers gives the US a D+ when it comes to our infrastructure. New Jersey would have an even poorer grade. Each year, the average commuter in our state spends $605 dollars fixing their cars from pothole damage and $861 dollars sitting in traffic.

Right now, because the Hudson Tunnel into New York City is 88 years old and in massive disrepair after Hurricane Sandy, NJ Transit riders face service disruptions and erratic train schedules between Secaucus and Penn Station on the weekends due to track repairs. We can't attract new residents and businesses when our roads, tunnels and bridges are crumbling.

There are clear economic benefits to improving our infrastructure. Studies have shown that each dollar of infrastructure spending increases the gross state product by two dollars. Moreover, fixing infrastructure helps attract new residents, businesses, and raises property values. Most important, it allows us to go home earlier to tuck our kids into bed.

Invest in light rail & new tunnel via one-time corporate tax

We need to bring light rail to Bergen County, build the Gateway Tunnel, invest in rail that goes straight to New York City without stopping in Secaucus, bring new bus and rail service to Sussex and Warren and ease our commute to New York City and within our district. I will incentivize companies to bring their dollars sitting overseas back home through a one-time lower tax rate and then allocate that revenue for a new infrastructure bank, which will invest in new roads, bridges, and tunnels.
