Senate President Steve Sweeney issued the following statement today regarding the governor’s veto of S2965, which would have established the “College Affordability Study Commission”:
“I cannot express how disappointed I am in the governor’s veto. We are facing a college affordability crisis here in New Jersey. The answers won’t just present themselves. We have to act.
“As we begin the new session, I fully plan, along with my colleague Assemblywoman Celeste Riley, on reintroducing the bill. New Jersey’s middle class families and the working poor can’t afford, literally and figuratively, for us to sit idly by and do nothing.”
