NJ Dems: Christie Pulled ARC Tunnel Numbers 'Out of Thin Air'

A top New Jersey Democrat says he's combed through the hundreds of pages that led Governor Chris Christie to dump the A.R.C. train tunnel under the Hudson River and found no justification for it.

"The documents provided by the governor’s own administration fail to provide any justification for the governor’s claim of billions in cost overruns on the tunnel project," Assemblyman John Wisniewski, head of the Assembly's Transportation Committee, said in a press release.

Wisniewski got roughly 400 pages of documents on Wednesday from the governor's office through a freedom of information request. The Democrat said that three reports on cost estimates that were included state, "The overall project remains within budget," and repeat that the budget remains at $8.7 billion.
