TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senators Steve Sweeney and Wayne R. Bryant which would allow county special services and vocational school districts to share resources received unanimous final legislative approval today from the full Assembly.
“It’s a well known fact that New Jersey’s high property taxes pose a significant financial burden on many residents throughout the state,” said Senator Sweeney, D-Gloucester, Cumberland and Salem. “By allowing districts to consolidate services, we would be helping to save taxpayer dollars, while still working to ensure that schools receive the services they need to successfully educate our children – it’s a win-win situation.”
“By investing in the education of your youth we are also investing in the future of tomorrow’s workforce – we want to ensure that they have every chance to succeed and thrive,” said Senator Bryant, D-Camden and Gloucester. “The goal of this legislation is to provide an exceptional education for all students, while working to ensure that we aren’t straining the pockets of taxpayers in the process.”
