TASK FORCE BILL ON DEVELOPMENTAL CENTERS IN FRONT OF CHRISTIE

120px-Seal_of_New_Jersey_svgThe fight to keep the Vineland Developmental Center is sitting at Gov. Chris Christie’s desk. Legislation that would create a task force that would look at all of the state’s developmental centers and decide which one should close, was passed last week through both houses of the government. Christie had called for the closing of the Vineland Developmental Center, but could sign this bill, which would look at all developmental centers. State Senator Jeff Van Drew supports keeping the building open, saying it would cost the area over 1,000 jobs. The move was looked at as a cost-saving move for the state, but won’t become official until next year.
