New Jersey Senate fails to restore funding for Urban Enterprise Zones

    New Jersey Democrats have been vocal about the effect Gov. Chris Christie’s cuts will have on cities, and Urban Enterprise Zones are just one example.

    The state Senate was unsuccessful in its attempt to override Christie’s veto of UEZ funding. The override would have put $47 million into more than 30 zones. Instead, the $94 million Christie diverted into the general fund will stay put, as the News of Cumberland County reports.

    Only three Republicans voted with the override.
