In his recent testimony supporting Governor Murphy's proposed FY24 budget, NJEA President Spiller requested that the state increase the operating costs for community colleges with an increase of $20 million. Currently, the proposed budget flat funds community colleges at the same level they received in 2009 – the $20 million increase would help to put NJ on the path towards achieving the 30% state contribution level. This flat funding hurts our community colleges and puts more of a financial burden on students.
Show your support for our community colleges by urging your legislators to increase the funding by $20 million with this take action.
Stay Informed and Involved,
Legislation Committee Chair
