The Senate today approved legislation sponsored in part by State Senator Jeff Van Drew to create a task force to study Governor Christie’s proposal to slash funding for New Jersey Network and transition it from a government-run entity, paving the way for control by a not-for-profit organization. The measure would ensure that residents’ investment in the network is protected, and that the Jersey-centric programming focus is maintained in the event of a transition. Governor Christie proposed slashing the network’s $3.9 million funding nearly in half in the FY 2011 budget, appropriating $1.9 million. The proposal anticipates the elimination of all 129 employees.
