Statement from Press Secretary Michael Drewniak on H.R. 1586 - Education Jobs and Medicaid Assistance Act

Trenton, NJ - Press Secretary Michael Drewniak today issued the following statement:

"While Governor Chris Christie believes that using this type of non-recurring funding for operating expenses is ill advised because it will disappear after one year, the Governor will apply for the education funding passed by the House today in order to ensure it is managed and distributed to local school districts by the State of New Jersey, and not the federal government. Guaranteeing New Jersey is in control of these education dollars will ensure that these funds are used by all school districts to help restore some of the federal stimulus funds lost in this year's difficult budget."
