Addiego: "Judges Must Share in Sacrifice Like Every Other Public Servant"

Trenton— Senate Labor Committee member Dawn Marie Addiego (R- Burlington/Camden/Atlantic) issued the following statement praising the committee's advancement of SCR-110, legislation reversing the Supreme Court's decision on judicial benefit cost sharing:

The state's pension funds are in serious financial trouble, and the burden of making them solvent should not fall exclusively upon the taxpayers of New Jersey. Judges should share in the sacrifice needed to save their retirement system just like every other public employee. The Judicial Retirement System is the most generous in state government and cannot be sustained at current levels without asking more of those who stand to benefit from it.
