New Jersey has uncovered $26 million from old bank accounts, according to the Associated Press. State Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff said the money came from several bond issues that go all the way back to the 1960’s.
Though the state legislator in Trenton has the final say on how the money is used, Sidamon-Eristoff hopes to use the money to pay down the state’s debt. He also indicated that more money could be located with the search still ongoing.
