Statement By MTA Chairman Peter S. Kalikow^ Regarding Capital Plan Amendment

I am distressed by the Assembly's veto of the MTA's Capital Plan amendment. It is particularly disturbing that this veto was issued without explanation after extensive briefings and information were provided over the last month. It is unfortunate that despite our efforts critical capital needs, which would allow us to enhance our transportation system, cannot be advanced.
