    New Jersey school budget and board votes held tomorrow

    Votes are on the table tomorrow for New Jersey schools’ budgets and boards, after the elections were moved to avoid a conflict with Passover.

     

    New Jersey is the only state in the nation where voters have a direct say in how much tax money supports their schools.

    As the Associated Press reports, Gov. Chris Christie rejected almost 60 percent of the budget plans last year, despite a trend of the plans typically being accepted. Taxes in most town can’t go up more than 2 percent this year in most places, and New Jersey already has the highest average property tax bill in the nation.
