Brian Hubert in The Daily Freeman reports New York Senator Chuck Schumer says more than 2,200 state bridges, including 423 in the Hudson Valley, are considered functionally obsolete or structurally deficient, and he wants to increase federal funding to fix them. The current transportation bill in Congress would lock in funding at current levels, which Schumer finds unacceptable given the current situation.
