Benson Statement on Bill to Make Major Investment in Career/Technical Education & School Security & Water Infrastructure Now Law

(TRENTON) – Assemblyman Dan Benson (D-Mercer, Middlesex) issued the following statement on the “Securing Our Children’s Future Bond Act” becoming law:

“Making this necessary investment in career and technical education programs will help us maintain and attract high-demand industries that are the engine of New Jersey’s economic growth.

“Just as important, this takes proactive measures to enhance school security and clean up our school water infrastructure, particularly eliminating old facilities with lead. This Bond Act is the right step toward ensuring greater protection for all New Jersey’s students.

“The funding, if approved by voters in November, will secure the future for all children throughout the State of New Jersey by making these critical investments today.”
