Assemblywoman Eliana Pintor Marin (D-Essex) questions the Christie administration on Wednesday about its failure to support women’s health care.
The questioning came during an Assembly Budget Committee hearing with the Department of Health.
New Jersey had a long standing budget line dedicating money to critical women’s health care services. For instance, in 2009, women’s health care was funded at $7.4 million, but since Gov. Christie took office that money has been eliminated, despite Democratic efforts to restore it.
The cut has led to education programs being scrapped, staff hours reduced and even the closing of some women’s health clinics in the state.
