HUNTERDON ASSEMBLYWOMAN Simon Statement on Pension Ruling

Assemblywoman Donna Simon, R-Somerset, Hunterdon, Mercer and Middlesex, issued the following statement  after the state Supreme Court ruled the government is not required to make additional contributions to the public employee pension system:

“The court’s ruling affirms the only way to solve this systemic problem is by working together. If half the energy was spent on a solution rather than politics, we’d have a good start. It is time for all interested parties to work with the Legislature and the governor to address the short and long-term pension fund issues, healthcare costs, fair school funding and ways to reduce spending to get New Jersey on the right track.”
