The State of NJ took funds from the recipients of its "disease" funding commissions, including the NJ Commission on Spinal Cord Research. In the past, revenue from speeding tickets flows to this commission but is now being used by the State to pay down debt. Commission funding supports scientists at State research institutions including the Spinal Cord Injury Project at Rutgers University. This project provides research for clinical trials that will soon help paralyzed individuals recover function and independence.
