A new measure sponsored by Assembly Anthony Brindisi would potentially dispense with the Gap Elimination Adjustment that results in a loss of over $17.1 million in local school aid.

At a rally tomorrow in front of the State Office building, Brindisi will be joined by students, parents, teachers and school officials to speak out in favor of fair school funding.

The GEA was introduced in 2010 and used to reduce state aid to school districts across New York resulting in an increased burden on property tax payers.

The legislation would provide school districts with the full amount of aid generated by all existing budget funding.

Based on the numbers in the 2014-2015 Executive Budget Proposal, eliminating the GEA would increase state aid to local school districts between $500,000 and $3 million.
