Officials may need to reschedule a $57.8 million school bond referendum for Edison Township scheduled for Sept. 30 because the vote falls on Rosh Hashanah.

Sen. Barbara Buono, D-Middlesex, last week announced that she would ask Senate President Richard Codey to call the Senate into special session in order to pass emergency legislation that would limit school board officials from holding bond referendums on religious holidays. If passed in time, the proposed initiative would force the Edison Public School District to change the referendum to another date and also restrict elections from being held on religious holidays.
