(Washington, DC) -- U.S. Senator Robert Menendez is calling for more money for the nation's crumbling transit infrastructure. At a Senate hearing Thursday in Washington, Menendez said the seven largest rail systems have 50 billion dollars in backlog projects just to put them in reasonably good condition.
Dorval Carter with the Federal Transit Administration supports the President's "Grow America Act" which would fund the backlog projects.
