Bridge Collapse in New Jersey

derailNovember 30, 2012 – How much longer are you going to wait to pass an adequate infrastructure bill, Congress? Today we got the news that a rail bridge collapsed on Friday over a creek in southern New Jersey, causing a Conrail freight train to derail and spill hazardous chemicals into the water, authorities said.  Five tanks of the freight train, which was carrying vinyl chloride, fell into the Mantua Creek, which feeds into the Delaware River near Philadelphia, the U.S. Coast Guard said. At this point there are no reported death. What's it going to take Congress?
