Assembly Republican Press Release -
Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi today welcomed a fair school funding plan announced by Gov. Chris Christie.
“The lopsided and indefensible school funding formula is largely responsible for New Jersey’s infamous property taxes, but even more disturbing is the failure of the formula to effectively educate the students in districts that cost the most taxpayer dollars,” said Schepisi (R—Bergen).
“Other than a couple SDA districts, towns in Bergen and Passaic counties have carried the brunt of increasing property taxes, yet they have received the least amount of funding in the entire state. Any legislator representing these counties who does not support this fair and balanced approach is failing to represent their own constituents.”
