TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey taxpayers might pump $20 million into a plan for Seton Hall University and the parent company of Hackensack University Medical Center to form a private medical school.

Senate budget committee chairman Paul Sarlo has added the amendment to the upcoming state budget.

The Democrat tells The Record (https://bit.ly/1K9dVwu ) newspaper using public money for a private venture will boost the local economy.

Plans call for basing the school at the former Swiss medical products firm Roche Holding campus in Clifton and Nutley that closed in 2013.

The school needs approval from a national accreditation group.

The state has four public medical schools. Two are affiliated with Rutgers University and two are aligned with Rowan University.
