Description

In response to the news that Schools Construction Corporation, an agency responsible for New Jersey's statewide school construction program, was running out of money, the Star-Ledger launched an investigation into how the program depleted its $8.6 billion budget. Their investigation revealed a number of flaws in the program including costly mid-project changes, top-dollar construction firms miscalculating the cost of equipment for the school projects, and "political interference" from then-Governor James E. McGreevey.
