Lanza On State Budget:
Money For Many,
But Nothing For Hunterdon
School Kids
Hunterdon County Commissioner John E. Lanza, at the July 6 Commissioner meeting, questioned how Governor Murphy could approve a state budget that cut aid to twenty Hunterdon County school districts by more than $3 million, while awarding hundreds of millions for favored legislators’ projects, including $10 million in additional aid to North Bergen schools.
 
Calling it more than an outrage, Lanza said he would send the state budget added items list to the Hunterdon County school districts that had their aid cut, so they could seek answers from the legislators that represent the County that supported these add-ons, as to their failure to gain funds for Hunterdon County’s school children and property taxpayers.

The 4H Fair Committee advised the Board of Commissioners of their determination that the event should go forward this year, after being postponed due to the pandemic in 2020. The Fair is scheduled for August 24 – 29, at the South County Park in East Amwell.

Hunterdon Commissioners Call For Penn East Eminent Domain Fight To Continue In Congress 

Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners Director Susan J. Soloway stated, “The Supreme Court, in their 5-4 decision, supported by the Biden Administration, hung their hat on the 1938 Natural Gas Act. It is time to change the law. We will be proposing a resolution on July 6th asking our federal representatives to act on pending legislation amending the 1938 Act.”
