New Jersey Governor-elect Phil Murphy, after meeting with the state's two U.S. senators, called the Gateway project for new rail tunnels under the Hudson as their "top of the list" priority, according to reporting by James Nash (Dec. 12) for the North Jersey Record and other Gannett papers. Murphy says he plans to meet with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to enlist his support for the project, estimated to cost $27 billion. "It's a game changer for New Jersey and it's a game changer for New York," Murphy told reporters.  Senators Booker and Menendez, who also attended the press conference, had their own comments on rail transit, Menendez reminding reporters that outgoing Gov. Chris Christie seven years ago forfeited $3 billion in funding for an earlier proposed tunnel project, saying that the project would cost New Jersey taxpayers billions in cost overruns; Booker said he plans to push for more Federal security at rail stations.  The press conference on Monday, Dec. 11, was overshadowed by a terrorist bombing attack that morning in Manhattan.
