Increased Local School Aid Encourages Property Tax Relief Efforts

Senate Republican Budget Officer Tony Bucco announced today that local school districts will receive an additional $318 million in school aid for the 2011-2012 school year:

Senator Bucco worked closely with the Christie Administration in an effort to gain a fairer share of school aid dollars for suburban schools in the final state budget signed by the Governor.

“School children and property taxpayers are the primary beneficiaries of the Governor’s decision to dedicate additional state revenue to school aid for suburban communities,” said Senator Bucco. “I’m pleased that Governor Christie worked with us over the past several months to dedicate additional state revenues to school aid for suburban communities.”

“By making tough choices and using an unexpected bump in state revenues wisely, we were able not only to increase aid over last year, but to double the rate of increase that was originally proposed in March. This increase in school aid for suburban districts will undoubtedly support the efforts of local officials to reduce the increase in property taxes that have been driving middle-class families out of New Jersey for more than a decade.”
