NJ Democrats Want to Halt College Building Funds

Some Democratic lawmakers in New Jersey want to block the state from helping to pay for construction at two religious schools.A Jewish yeshiva, Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, and the Christian Princeton Theological Seminary were both approved last month to receive building money as part of a $1.3 billion state bond issue.

The yeshiva is to get $10.6 million and the seminary $640,000.

Some lawmakers are questioning whether it’s proper for the schools to get money. They also say Gov. Chris Christie’s administration has not been willing to share documents explaining how the state chose how to distribute the grants.

Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver and Assemblyman Pat Diegnan on Tuesday announced they’re introducing a resolution calling on lawmakers to halt disbursement of the aid for all the schools.
