A nonpartisan group of economists and fiscal-policy experts assembled by Rowan University’s newly established Sweeney Center for Public Policy is planning to issue long-term reports on the state budget beginning this year.
Among the group’s more than two dozen members are a recent state treasurer and economists from Rutgers and Rowan universities, according to a news release from the policy center named after former Senate President Steve Sweeney.
NJ SEED: This organization, if it remains truly non-partisan, can provide valuable information and insight to the legislature and administration – who will hopefully give careful consideration to the Center’s recommendations. Former Senate President Sweeney and Rowan University are to be commended for this initiative.
