Of Lautenberg and Trains

Senators Corzine and Lautenberg recently announced over $112 million in federal funding for projects in New Jersey, reports NJpolitics. At a press conference, both senators emphasized the need for investment in public transportation, which millions of New Jersey commuters depend on, especially in light of recent security increases.

Corzine and Lautenberg have so far made a good team in D.C. They rarely vote against one another, and Corzine has wisely fallen in step with the Lautenberg crusade for transportation funding, or due to the recent proposals to roll back funding for Amtrak in Congress, "transportation protection". They sit on similar committees, Corzine having seats on Banking, Energy, Budget, and Intelligence, while Lautenberg sit on Environment and Public Works, Transportation, and Homeland Security.

Go to NJpolitics for a complete list of the projects and expenditures.

I would like to point out that Live8 was an appeal to the vanity of people who collectively aren't concerned enough about Africa to watch a classical music concert.
