“As members of the Budget Committee we are tasked with ensuring every taxpayer dollar achieves the maximum benefit for all the New Jerseyans,” said O’Toole (R-Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic). “I was utterly dismayed to read about this obscure agency apparently using taxpayer funds for frivolous trips and lavish dinners.”

Senator O’Toole requested that the Insurance Group’s executive director and senior officials by called to testify at a public Budget Committee hearing in the coming weeks. The Senator asked for their past 10 years of budgets; payroll; and all travel and entertainment expenses.
