If the money's there, why no action on NJ transit projects?

Not a single step can be taken on vitally needed new transportation projects in New Jersey until a new committee meets to select which projects get funded. 

The catch? The committee doesn't yet exist.

That's right. Despite months of delay, as the governor and legislature wrangled over a funding source--finally settling on an increase in the state's gas-tax--no one apparently bothered to come up with names of folks to sit on the panel and choose what projects will get the green light.

And when the committee's members finally are appointed, expect the political horse-trading to begin in earnest.
