Assembly Republican Budget Committee member Gary Chiusano, R-Sussex, Warren and Morris, issued the following statement on today’s Assembly Budget Committee meeting intended to help create jobs and grow the economy in New Jersey:
“The goals of today’s agenda are admirable and ones that Republicans have long championed. However, we need a bipartisan, comprehensive and coherent approach to create private sector jobs.
“We must work together on practical solutions that are cost conscious and nonpartisan, especially considering the enormous financial toll New Jersey faces to rebuild our state after Hurricane Sandy.
“Growing our state’s economy while repairing the shore will be an enormous challenge that cannot be accomplished piece meal. It requires a united effort to strengthen our state and its economy.”

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
