Menendez: Privatizing Amtrak's Northeast Corridor Would be Devastating for New Jersey

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), chair of the Senate Banking subcommittee with jurisdiction on transit, today condemned a House Republican plan to privatize Amtrak's Northeast Corridor.

"Privatizing Amtrak makes as much sense as privatizing Medicare or Social Security. In other words, no sense at all," said Menendez. "This proposal would not only disrupt Amtrak service from Washington to Boston, but it would also deny New Jersey critical infrastructure investments that are important to our commuter rail service throughout the state."
