Default Governor of New Jersey Kills $8.7 Billion Train Tunnel

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/08/ny...emc=rss&src=ig


The governor, a Republican, said he decided to withdraw his support for the project on Thursday after hearing from state transportation officials that the project would cost at least $2.5 billion more than its original price of $8.7 billion. He said that New Jersey would have been responsible for the overrun and that he could not put the taxpayers of the state “on what would be a never-ending hook.”
