“To quote Ronald Reagan, ‘a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.’” said Corrado (R-40). “After news of this latest scandal and subsequent lawsuit, the School Development Authority is past the point of no return. I stand with Senate President Sweeney and call for the termination of this corrupt entity that has demonstrated its existence achieves more harm than good.”

Published reports allege that leaders of the SDA, which is currently entangled in multiple lawsuits, created a “discriminatory, hostile, and bigoted environment.”

Corrado and Sweeney are primary sponsors of S-859, legislation that would eliminate the SDA and transfers its school construction responsibilities to the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA).

O’Scanlon is a co-sponsor of the measure.

“This agency is the epitome of what gives State workers and their bosses a bad name,” said O’Scanlon (R-13). “Not only is this agency the butt of jokes, it also contributes to the public’s skepticism of government as a corrupt patronage pit. The SDA has got to go.”
