The New Jersey State Senate earlier this week formed a committee to investigate New Jersey Transit's failures and develop an action plan for improving the commuter-rail service, according to a press release issued by New Jersey Senate Republicans.

The Senate Select Committee will include New Jersey Democratic Sens. Loretta Weinberg, Sandra Cunningham, Patrick Diegnan; and Republican Sens. Tom Kean, Kip Bateman and Kristin Corrado. 

New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney will chair the committee.

“New Jersey Transit’s continuing struggles during the [Gov. Phil] Murphy administration have left commuters with unacceptably poor service,” Kean said. “Senate Republicans are committed to working to develop solutions to give rail-riding New Jerseyans the reliability they need and deserve every single day.”
