In a press conference, Republican members of the Assembly Budget Committee Declan O’Scanlon, Tony Bucco and Chris Brown pressed Democrats to come up with a pension payment plan instead of filing an amicus brief with the state Supreme Court in support of the unions’ case.
Asm. Christopher J. Brown: “We have about $8.5 million left to be distributed to our school districts. Would that be cut it they want the $1.6 billion? We have no mechanism to go back and create revenue out of thin air. … This to me is leadership run amok. It doesn’t define anything about where New Jersey’s path should be, but rather political grandstanding.”
