Re:    BUDGET COMMITTEE HEARINGS ON-LINE REGISTRATION AVAILABLE
MAKE THE CASE FOR RELIEF FUNDING RESTORATION

Dear Mayor:

The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and the Assembly Budget Committee have announced their schedules for public hearings on the Governor’s proposed State Budget.

Any Mayor wishing to testify can register on-line at: http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/13Budget/default.asp.

Senate hearings are scheduled for March 13, 2012 at Montclair State University, and March 21, 2012 at Burlington County College. Assembly Committee hearings will be held March 7, 2012 at the State House Annex in Trenton, March 14, 2012 at UMDNJ - New Jersey Dental School in Newark and March 20, 2012 at a site to be determined in South Jersey.

This is your opportunity to make the case for full municipal property tax relief funding. If you prepare testimony, please provide us with a copy.

If you decide to testify, please emphasize our top priority property tax relief issue – providing local government with the revenues available through the ENERGY TAX and CMPTRA programs. More information on this is available at our Energy Tax Restoration Center, on-line at: http://www.njslom.org/energy-tax-resource-center.html

Press accounts of the League’s testimony on this issue at yesterday’s meeting of the Assembly Budget Committee can be found at http://www.politickernj.com/55229/local-officials-appeal-budget-committee-restoration-energy-tax-revenue and
