Statement from Press Secretary Michael Drewniak on Today’s Appellate Court Decision

Trenton, NJ – Today Press Secretary Michael Drewniak issued the following statement:

This was among the most difficult decisions the Governor had to make shortly after assuming office to help close a $2 billion gap in the current year’s budget.  We know using surplus balances was a difficult step for school districts, but it was an urgent and necessary step amid a fiscal emergency.  In that sense the Governor is pleased that the Appellate Court recognized his significant responsibilities and executive authority during a fiscal and economic crisis.”
