NJ Spotlight--Administration Yet to Heed Recommendations of Anti-Bullying Task Force

More support for districts and clarification of what actually constitutes bullying are both part of final report from panel

New Jersey’s pioneering anti-bullying law for schools has gone through a few changes and debates since it was enacted in 2012.

There was the call -- and at least an initial fulfillment -- for the state to contribute funds to help districts pay for the new protocols. And over the years, the state has released a series of guidance memos as to how the law should be implemented.

Now, the Christie administration faces a new test; a task force of its own making has recommended a series of changes that so far have been slow to be heeded.

NJ Spotlight-- Public Gets Chance to Offer Views on Christie’s Proposed Budget for FY2017

Legislators schedule five hearings around NJ; fuel tax and estate tax remain key elements left out of spending plan

State lawmakers will hold five public hearings across the state this month as they begin the annual process of reviewing Gov. Chris Christie’s budget for the next fiscal year.

The public hearings will give New Jersey residents, public-policy advocates and interest groups an opportunity to tell lawmakers what they like and don’t like about Christie’s $34.8 billion proposed spending plan before the new fiscal year begins on July 1.
