Reynolds-Jackson & Verrelli Bill to Restore Transitional Aid to Trenton & Paterson Clears Assembly

Transitional Aid was taken out of FY2019 Budget by Murphy Administration

Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Verlina Reynolds-Jackson and Anthony Verrelli (both D-Mercer/Hunterdon) to restore transitional aid funding to Trenton and Paterson that was removed from the FY19 state budget via line-item veto by Gov. Phil Murphy was approved Thursday by the General Assembly.

The bill (A-4350) would restore $36 million in transitional aid to Trenton and Paterson that was removed from the FY19 budget.

"This funding gap can hurt taxpayers in Trenton and Paterson who may be stuck making up the difference. With this bill, we can help prevent that," said Reynolds-Jackson. "This is funding that these municipalities have consistently received in the past, and rely on to balance their budgets and fund the functions of municipal government. It should be restored."
