Christie statement on passage of pension and benefits reform bill

Gov. Chris Christie issued the following statement upon passage S2937 reforming the state’s pension and health benefits plans:

“Together, we’re showing New Jersey is serious about providing long-term fiscal stability for our children and grandchildren. We are putting the people first and daring to touch the third rail of politics in order to bring reform to an unsustainable system,” Christie said. “I want to thank Senate President Sweeney and Speaker Oliver for putting aside politics, committing themselves to reform and remaining unwilling to settle for anything less than the real, viable solutions New Jerseyans have been demanding.”
