Re: Political efforts to resurrect ''Bergen Loop'' to connect to Amtrak Gateway afoot

If I were a NJ politician, I'd be wary of spending billions to make it EASIER for my residents to work in New York.

One could argue that this is a reason why we should abolish state governments and reorganize around regional governments that can focus on regional growth and land use, while avoiding duplicative structures.

Regardless, the question is if it's better to spend the money to allow residents to have greater access to the job market that New York provides, especially for high end jobs in FIRE, or should the state risk having residents move to New York if connections are better there, or leave the metro area entirely?
