senate democrats PLEDGE TO RECOMMEND FUNDING FOR EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE

MOUNT LAUREL - The Senate Budget and Appropriations
Committee held the second of two public hearings today at Burlington
County College's Mount Laurel campus, during which they heard from a
number of groups who came to testify about their State budget needs.

The Committee heard testimony from representatives of a
number of State and local organizations, as well as from individual
residents.

"Today's testimony was excellent," said Senator Bernard F.
Kenny, Jr., D-Hudson, who chairs the Senate Budget and Appropriations
panel. "The public is extremely focused on the Fiscal Year 2008 budget.
The panel heard from 80 concerned witnesses today, and as the Chairman
of this Committee, I promise to look through the written testimony that
was submitted and work with my colleagues to find whatever extra funding
we can."

"During today's hearing, the major issues presented were the
need for increased funding for health care and education," said Senator
Joseph V. Doria, D-Hudson. "As a committee it is now our turn to work
together to deal with the issues and to help make sure that any
increased or additional funding goes to the people and groups who need
it the most."

"All of the testimony today was informative, but what stood
out the most to me were requests in the areas of school funding," said
Senator Barbara Buono, D-Middlesex. "Representatives of the Garden
State Coalition of Schools and the New Jersey Library Association, as
well as representatives of some of the State's vocational and technical
schools spoke about the need for increased funding to help maintain the
exceptional level of education many of our public schools provide.
Looking ahead, it would behoove this Committee to examine the funding
levels dedicated to education under Governor Corzine's budget, and to
make changes to increase those appropriations wherever feasible. The
future of our children depends on it."

" When we sit down to figure out the fiscal year 2008
budget, we need to make sure that the increase in the Cost of Living
Adjustment is passed on to healthcare providers," said Senator Shirley
K. Turner, D-Mercer. "We must also retain the Earned Income Tax Credit
as the Governor has presented it. The people of New Jersey work hard to
provide for themselves and their families, while struggling to pay some
of the highest property taxes in the nation. The fiscal year 2008
budget must include funding to help ease the financial burden on the
State's poor and working families."

The Senate Budget and Appropriations panel will reconvene
tomorrow at 10 a.m. to hear testimony from the State Office of
Legislative Services. State Treasurer Bradley Abelow will brief the
Committee at 1:30 p.m. Both hearings will be held in Committee Room 4 of
the State House Annex.
