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:

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile
