Officials are going to get their chance to try and get UEZ funding back. State Senator Jeff Van Drew, who chairs the state’s Community and Urban Affairs Committee, will be the chair of the meeting. Gov. Chris Christie said in his budget message he wants to keep all of the UEZ money this year while the programs are looked at. This money will help close an $11 billion budget hole. A total of 37 municipalities take part in the UEZ program.
