Project supporters and the Trump administration disagree on the takeaway for the Gateway project after Congress and the president signed a federal spending bill earlier this month.
Elise Young and Henry Goldman report:
The federal spending bill signed last week by President Donald Trump relieves a funding crunch for one of America’s most urgent infrastructure needs, according to boosters of the New York City-area Gateway rail project.
The Trump administration’s response: Dream on. The U.S. Transportation Department says they’re prematurely counting on support from the Federal Transit Administration.
Young and Goldman don't speculate which side is correct, but say the project's challenges are deepening as the dispute drags on.
