O’Toole: Davy on The Right Track

Unworkable, Expensive, Mandated Programs Must Be Eliminated

Senator Kevin O’Toole, a member of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement today regarding Education Commissioner Lucille Davy’s comments concerning mandated programs.

“Commissioner Davy’s Comments to the Press of Atlantic City are certainly welcome. She seems committed to identifying and eliminating unnecessary, expensive mandated education programs.

“These programs are certainly one of the primary drivers of local property taxes. Today’s economic environment demands that we implement budget savings wherever possible. I look forward to working with the commissioner and reviewing her recommendations.

“I urge Commissioner Davy to move quickly to implement these changes. However, we must be mindful that any program cuts dot not adversely affect the high quality of education in local school districts.”
