Corzine reassures privatization skeptic Oberstar

| 6/20/2007

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine says that if his state privatizes any toll roads, it will do so in a way that will satisfy Congressional skeptics.

The Star-Ledger reports that Corzine made that pledge to U.S. Rep. James Oberstar, D-MN.

Oberstar co-authored a letter that went out to governors in all 50 states warning them that Congress could overturn private toll road agreements if a state doesn’t protect the public interest.
