EAST RAMAPO, N.Y. – An attempt by Rockland County lawmakers to add a measure to the state budget that would give more revenue and state oversight to the East Ramapo school district has failed, according to a report by lohud.com.
Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski, one of the three lawmakers pushing for the measure, said he was disappointed in the decision, lohud.com said.
The proposal would have given the state Education Department power to decide how to spend $5 million per year in the area, reported lohud.com.
The next step for Zebrowski is to introduce a separate bill that would get the revenue and oversight to East Ramapo, lohud.com noted.Read the lohud.com article here.
