Representatives from N.J. public worker unions are back in court on Thursday over pension payments that were cut by Gov. Christie to balance the budget. Seven months ago the governor was excused from making two full pension contributions by a state Superior Court judge. Today’s hearing is about the second annual payment of $1.57 billion cut by Christie to overcome a revenue shortfall that created a “fiscal emergency”. New Jersey’s retirement system for teachers, police officers, state troopers, firefighters and office workers currently faces $83 billion in unfunded liabilities.
