2005
U.S. Rep. Donald Young, of Alaska (at right) met early today with NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch, Congressional leaders from New Jersey, and senior transportation officials to discuss renewal of a major transportation funding package that could benefit New Jersey. The legislation is known as the Federal TEA-LU transportation bill. With the U.S. Senate's recent approval of a $295 billion spending bill, the package moves to a conference committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. Young, who is chairman of the transportation committee in the House, has also been named chairman of this key committee. Following the meeting at NJIT, a special luncheon honoring Young was held in Newark. In 2003, Altenkirch was named to a Blue Ribbon Transportation Commission to benefit New Jersey. In 2004, the Commission made recommendations to federal legislators regarding transportation funding and priorities.  >>
