Re: Legislation Regarding Defeated School Budget Deadline before
Senate Education Committee on Thursday
On Thursday, the Senate Education Committee will be considering A-248/S-2458, which requires the Commissioner of Education to change the deadline for municipal review of defeated school budgets whenever he changes the annual school election date. A-248/S-2458 addresses an oversight that has created an inadequate time frame for governing bodies to act upon a defeated school budget. (For more information please see our August 28 Dear Mayor Letter).
The League enthusiastically supports A-248/S-2458 and thanks Senator Bucco, Assemblymen Schaer and Diegnan and Assemblywoman DeCroce for supporting and advancing this important legislation. We would also like to thank Senator Ruiz for posting this bill for consideration by the Senate Education Committee.
Please contact your Senator and urge them to vote yes on A-248/S-2458.
If you have any questions or need additional information please do not hesitate to contact Lori Buckelew at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-695-3481 x112.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
