New Jersey Legislature

Special Session on Property Tax Reform



Establishment

The Joint Legislative Committee on Public School Funding Reform was created by Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 3. It is the duty of the committee to review and formulate proposals that address the manner in which government provides for the maintenance and support of a system of free public schools for the instruction of the children of this State. The committee may consider proposals to: provide State support based on student needs rather than geographic location; eliminate disincentives to the regionalization of school districts; control school district spending, particularly administrative spending; and improve the effectiveness of the current law limiting increases in school district spending.
