The Northeast Corridor Commission — a coalition of Amtrak, commuter transit agencies, states and the U.S. Department of Transportation — announced Nov. 16 an ambitious 15-year plan to rebuild the Boston-New York City-Washington, D.C., rail line.
After years of delays and political fights, construction finally began Nov. 3 on the Hudson River Tunnel portion of the Gateway Program, a $16.1 billion group of projects that will double capacity for the Northeast Corridor rail segment connecting New Jersey and New York City. President Joe Biden in January called Gateway “one of the biggest, the most consequential projects in the country.”

November's District 10 Message From Mike Starner
I have spent my entire adult life working in the Electric Transmission and Distribution Industry. I am truly blessed to have been given an opportunity that most people can only fully appreciate in retrospect. As a knuckle-headed teenager, I had no sense of direction or purpose. It wasn’t until my uncle, realizing that I was standing at a fork in the road of life, did something that would change my life forever – he hired me.He was a foreman on a line-clearance tree crew and one thing that he knew for sure is that tree work would either make or break me.
