LIVINGSTON - Gov. Chris Christie held his 16th town hall today in Livingston. Christie spoke about proposals to help New Jersey towns control property taxes and statewide education reforms.
Christie signed legislation over the summer that takes effect Jan. 1 that would cap local spending and property tax growth at 2 percent a year.
The new law was designed to slow the rate of property tax increases in a state where the average household is assessed nearly $7,300 a year, the highest in the country.
Christie also stressed that major changes need to be made in order to improve New Jersey schools. He said that more money doesn't necessarily mean better education.
