34:1B-7.21. Findings, declarations
2. The Legislature finds and declares that the northeastern region of the country and New Jersey, in particular, continues to be seriously affected by the national economic downturn; that public sector involvement to finance urgently needed projects through the Economic Recovery Fund, established pursuant to section 4 of P.L.1992, c.16 (C.34:1B-7.13), is necessary to stimulate growth and provide employment during this ongoing recessionary economy; that, as part of this program to boost economic growth in the State, it is essential to address the current estimated unmet need of two billion dollars for the renovation, repair, conversion, alteration and construction of school buildings in the State in order to provide safe and adequate pubic school buildings; that the limitations on the availability of funds from other sources has impaired the ability of school districts to go forward with financing necessary to complete repairs, renovations, alterations, conversions and construction of school buildings; that the lack of adequate buildings and facilities has seriously impeded the ability of school districts to provide a thorough and efficient system of education to all pupils as required by the State Constitution; and that the State cannot ignore its obligation to remedy conditions which jeopardize the health, safety and general welfare of our children.
