SWEENEY PROPOSES CUTTING AID TO TOWNS WHO DO NOT SHARE SERVICES

New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney is drafting new legislation that would financially penalize communities who do not share services.  Sweeney announced that he is putting together a new bill that would give a state commission the power to advise towns and counties how to share services to save money.  If the towns do not comply, then they will be penalized the amount of money that they would have saved with reduced state aid.  Sweeney wants to create a so called Local Unit Alignment, Reorganization and Consolidation Commission to study how governments operate.
