Poll: Should Christie Raid Clean Energy Fund (Again) to Help Solve Latest Shortfall?
The governor has hit up the fund for more than $1.3 billion over past seven years. What’s another $20 million?
This week we learned that the state has yet another shortfall, just weeks before the fiscal year ends. One part of the solution? Take more money from the state’s Clean Energy Fund. In the past seven years, this fund has been raided for more than $1.3 billion. The fund is fueled by the societal benefits charge that all gas and electric customers pay. It is earmarked for programs that reduce energy use and promote renewables.
