The first bill, S-3076, appropriates $400 million from the Transportation Trust Fund (TTF), including $260 million for immediate road and bridge repairs across the state and $140 million for technology and safety improvements at New Jersey Transit.

“We’re now able to shift much more of the burden of paying for local transportation improvements from property taxpayers to the State,” said Oroho. “That’s the direct result of our successful efforts last year that coupled targeted tax cuts with a plan to take the TTF out of bankruptcy. Local officials can now undertake critical road and bridge repair projects without burdening property taxpayers with the full cost.”

The first bill, S-3076, appropriates $400 million from the Transportation Trust Fund (TTF) to pay for immediate road and bridge repair projects across the state in all 21 counties.

“The tax reform plan that we approved last year has made it possible for the state to pay for many critical transportation projects in communities across New Jersey,” said Oroho. “Our new legislation builds on that effort by having the state augment its share of funding for local road and bridge repairs that would otherwise have been borne by residents through increased property taxes.”

Conservative Senator Applauds that Bill Was Not Voted on Today

Senator Steve Oroho (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris) strongly criticized the Democrat majority in the Legislature for attempting to fast-track, without a public hearing, legislation that would reward local government officials for breaking federal law.

S-3007 instructs the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs to provide state taxpayer money to aid and abet any county or municipality that breaks federal law by harboring undocumented foreign nationals.

“Does anyone really believe that the United States should have 3,142 sovereign immigration policies, one for each county, and another 89,000 (give or take) covering the whims of each municipal government,” Oroho asked, adding, “What’s next, does everyone get to have their own foreign policy too?”
