Wisniewski, Prieto & Riley on Signing of ‘New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act’

(TRENTON) – Assembly Deputy Speaker John Wisniewski, Assembly Budget Chairman Vincent Prieto and Assembly Higher Education Chairwoman Celeste Riley released the following statements Wednesday as the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act (A-3102) they sponsored was signed into law:
Wisniewski (D-Middlesex):
“This law will elevate educational opportunities for all New Jersey students, regardless of where they live. A great higher education system is the key to a great New Jersey, and thanks to the changes made by Democrats, this law will bring that positive change. The law signed by the governor is far different from what he first proposed and thus is actually workable and better for our students, families and taxpayers. Providing New Jersey students with the reDests they need and deserve to pursue their dreams in New Jersey is the right thing to create a better future for our state. This is great progress for our state.”
Prieto (D-Hudson/Bergen):
“This is a substantial step toward a higher education system that gives all New Jersey students world-class higher educational opportunities – regardless of region, county or ZIP code. Our goal is to give New Jersey students the top-notch higher education opportunities they deserve, and that’s what this law aims to accomplish. This opens to the door to new opportunities for our students and state.”
Riley (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland):
“We believe it is essential to find a higher education solution that gives our students the reDests they need to achieve their dreams right here in New Jersey. For too many years, our state’s students have been denied the full state support and reDests they need to pursue those dreams, but this law puts New Jersey on track for a brighter future.”
