Acting Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff’s confirmation hearing isn’t over yet, but Senate Budget Committee Chairman Paul Sarlo – who is on the judiciary committee — has already issued a press release criticizing his support of Gov. Christopher Christie’e school aid freeze.

“The administration may think that taking needed state aid away from school districts is a fair way to balance the budget, but most New Jersey property taxpayers would probably think differently,” said Sarlo. 

Sarlo also said he was not satisfied with Sidamon-Eristoff’s justification for not dipping into the built-in $500 million state surplus.
