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.”
