Oliver on vouchers: Christie needs to discuss compromise that protects school system

TRENTON – Speaker Sheila Oliver’s office responded quickly today to Gov. Christie’s claim that she is holding up a voucher bill for schools by referencing comments made in May.

“We welcome him to come to the table and discuss a compromise that does not further threaten our public education system,” she said then.

“If the governor thinks I’m the only one standing in the way of the bill, then I challenge him to get it through the Senate first.”

Christie said at a town hall that there enough Assembly votes to pass a voucher measure, but that the Speaker won’t post it.
