Things are heating up with NJ’s budget!

Posted on May 25, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

We’ve all been following Connecticut’s budget proposal closely over the last few months.

But how about our tri-state area neighbors?

The New Jersey Supreme Court just ruled Gov. Christie’s educational budget “unconstitutional.”

According to CNN, “According to court documents, Christie’s budget fails to meet the funding requirements set forth by the School Funding Reform Act of 2008, a spending formula that guarantees financial support for all New Jersey public school districts.”

Accordingly, the Supreme Court ruled that $500 million must be restored to the state’s poorest school districts.

Interesting! What do you think about New Jersey’s situation, compared to Connecticut’s?
