Poll: On Target or Overkill? Ballot Question to Fully Fund the State Pension Plan?

NJ Spotlight | December 10, 2015 | Polling
Senate president Sweeney wants a ballot question put to NJ voters. Is he the man with the plan or the wrong guy for the job?

Senate President Stephen Sweeney under a resolution he introduced earlier this week wants voters to approve a constitutional amendment that would require the state to eventually start making the full contributions to the public-employee pension system that are estimated each year by actuaries. Sweeney wants the issue to go before voters next year and a phase-in up to full payment to begin the following year.
