The New Jersey Assembly Budget Committee is reviewing cuts Gov. Chris Christie has made to some of the state’s senior services.
Passed June 30, the budget included $1.3 billion fewer than Dems planned for, including a $30 million cut to nursing homes.
Christie’s administration says the cuts were made to over-funded accounts and won’t affect programs or services to seniors, but as the Associated Press report, a group from one long-term care facility for the disabled says the cuts endanger their chance to live normal lives.
Hearings will continue throughout the day.
