Wolfe: School Children First Beneficiaries Of Trenton’s “New Normal” Budgeting

boe new buildingGovernor Christie’s proposal to increase state aid to schools by $250 million in Fiscal Year 2012 shows that school children will be among the first beneficiaries of the Republican budgets that cut state spending without raising taxes, said Assemblyman David W. Wolfe. “We are making very difficult budget decisions to put New Jersey in a better position for future generations and it’s only fitting that school children are among the first beneficiaries of Trenton’s ‘New Normal,’” said Wolfe, R-Ocean and Monmouth, the ranking Republican on the Assembly Education Committee. “Although President Obama yanked $1 billion from New Jersey schools last year, Governor Christie has responded by proposing more state education funding for the second consecutive year.

“This year’s increase will have a profound impact in classrooms because it will not be offset by reductions from the federal government,” Wolfe added.

Wolfe said property taxpayers and school children can expect more good news in future years if the Legislature continues to work with the Governor on fixing the state’s finances.

“Responsible tax-cutting Republican budgets are already paying off for property taxpayers and school children,” Wolfe said. “But we can do more if we keep forging ahead on the long-term sustainable reform that’s needed to fix our state once and for all.” TLS.
