Van Drew was the only member of New Jersey’s congressional delegation to vote no

TRENTON, NJ — On Thursday, July 1, the House of Representatives voted in favor of a bipartisan infrastructure package that would allocate millions of dollars to New Jersey roads, bridges and transit infrastructure. Every member of the New Jersey congressional delegation voted in favor of the bill except for Congressman Jeff Van Drew. NJDSC Chairman LeRoy Jones is releasing the following statement on Van Drew’s decision to vote against this critical bill: 

“Today, the US House of Representatives did their job and passed a bipartisan bill that is desperately needed in order to address our nation’s faltering infrastructure. Jeff Van Drew was the only member of New Jersey’s congressional delegation who voted against a bill that would result in millions of federal dollars coming into our state and going towards roads, bridges, drinking water, public transportation and more. Congressman Van Drew once again has chosen to put partisan politics ahead of the needs of his own constituents. South Jersey deserves a representative who will fight for them and Jeff Van Drew has proven time and again that he will never do that.”
