New Jersey News, the state’s public television and radio station, is making it possible to watch Governor Chris Christie’s budget speech live over the Internet. The broadcast begins at 1 p.m. today and you can access it here.

The governor is expected to present a $29.3 billion budget proposal predicated on sharp cuts in state aid, including an $820 million slash to school funding and $445 million less in aid to municipalities. New Jersey has a budget shortfall of almost $11 billion.

Star Ledger columnist Paul Mulshine has a scathing piece today on the school aid cuts, and how they will fall hardest on suburban districts like Verona.
