Oroho/McHose/Chiusano: Latest Figures Continue to Show School Aid Formula Is Broken

Please Share:

Bookmark and Share

Senator Steve Oroho, Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose and Assemblyman Gary Chiusano (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris) said today’s release of state school aid numbers are a cause of great concern to them as school districts in Sussex, Warren and Morris Counties continue to be deprived of their fair share of education funding.

“This is exactly why we need a new funding formula that is balanced and accountable,” said Oroho. “Dozens of our local school districts are now among about 185 suburban and rural districts shortchanged from receiving basic aid, leaving them faced with potential increases in already too costly property taxes.”

Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth and Ocean) said a plea deal reached in a case of senseless killings of innocent bystanders in Elizabeth is an egregious example of why the death penalty should be reinstated in New Jersey.

“A shooter in the murders of a 13-year-old boy and a 54-year-old construction worker can walk free at age 42,” Singer said. “Where’s the justice in that?”

Democrats are, for political reasons, fighting income tax cuts for all in the governor’s FY13 budget, as well as the fiscal restraint necessary for continued job growth. What’s really shocking is how quickly they’ve forgotten their reign of unchecked power in Trenton and how that’s hurt residents.

Recent history depicts how the Democratic legislative majority squandered their own credibility on budgetary policy in the last decade:

Addiego, Rudder & Brown Introduce Bill to Jump-Start Housing Market

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Scott Rudder and Assemblyman Chris Brown (all R-8) have introduced legislation that will breathe life into the economy and help more New Jersey families become homeowners.

“In today’s environment, FHA is the No. 1 loan program in the country. There are first-time buyers who are ready to purchase condos and townhouses, but FHA is the only entity that will let you put down 3 percent to buy a house,” said Senator Addiego. “Without timely cooperation from the associations, these mortgages can not be approved, and the sale falls through.”

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Scott Rudder and Assembly Christopher J. Brown (all R-8) issued the following statements after Governor Chris Christie’s Budget Address to a joint session of the New Jersey Legislature.

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego:

“Governor Christie’s budget cuts taxes on every family in New Jersey, and continues to promote business expansion and job creation in our state. We are establishing a competitive advantage over our neighboring states, and New Jersey residents will reap the benefits.

“I applaud Governor Christie for putting forward a plan that will produce significant savings for taxpayers. The Governor’s plan to cut income taxes across the board will put more money back into workers’ paychecks, and his proposal to increase education aid to our schools will produce property tax savings for homeowners.”

“This truly balanced budget provides property tax relief, decreases income taxes while making the state’s largest pension payment yet following up on our commitment as part of the landmark pension reform legislation enacted last year,” Oroho said. “Because of the responsible budgeting under this governor, we’ve stabilized expenses and helped create a sustained period of private-sector job growth these past two years in stark contrast to the jobs we hemorrhaged as a result of the policy decisions under the former administration.”

The Governor’s budget is focused on rebuilding and improving the foundation of our economy so that it will create sustainable, private sector jobs. By holding the line on spending reducing taxes for every working family, we can compete for jobs with every other state in America and show businesses that New Jersey is a good investment.
