New Budget

Acting Gov. Codey has revised his budget proposals, and there may be more money in it for property tax relief. Hopefully it will go directly to schools and municipalites instead of into rebates, but they haven't decided yet. He's also rescaled his estimates from sale of state property. This budget has the biggest spending cuts in state history and is reducing dependence on one-time revenue tricks, according to State Treasurer John McCormac.

Those cuts the Assembly Dems found earlier this month? Not yet implemented.

I'm writin' my letters asking to forego the rebate programs and give the money directly to schools. Write yours if you agree. Trenton needs to hear from us.
