The administration released state aid figures today, detailing how the governor will dole out $1.37 billion to the state's municipalities.
Nearly every municipality in the state received flat funding with only Newark, Camden and Maurice River Township receiving additional aid. Those three towns received a total of $22 million more, which translates to the amount of transitional aid they received in the current fiscal year.
Newark received an additional $10 million, while Camden was awarded another $12 million. That is $3.5 million less than Camden received in transitional aid in the current fiscal year. Maurice River received an additional $265,000, the same amount received in transitional aid in the current fiscal year.
Gov. Chris Christie had reduced the amount of transitional aid by $22 million, leaving $94 million to be doled to distressed cities as part of an application process later in the year.
A spread sheet of all municipal aid figures is attached below:

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
