Relentless NJEA members, staff continue advocacy amid Budget showdown

More than 200 NJEA members and staff are expected to crowd the halls of the Statehouse over three late-June lobby days as Gov. Phil Murphy and the Legislature try to resolve a stalemate over the state budget.

The budget must be resolved by the June 30 deadline or else state government will shut down, meaning state-run parks, beaches, and some agencies not deemed essential would close.

NJEA and NJREA members as well as NJEA staff are packing the Statehouse corridors on the last three session days before the June 30 deadline to ensure that public education, school employees, and the students they serve have their voices heard during the budget process.
