Assembly Republican Budget Officer Declan O’Scanlon, R-Monmouth, issued the following statement on Governor Christie’s Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Address:
“Being able to deliver the highest level of property-tax relieving school aid in state history and the largest debt payment in state history, while achieving the smallest property tax growth in state history is no small feat. Governor Christie has crafted another in a series of fiscally conservative and responsible budgets.
“These results are no accident. The hard work to cap property taxes and reform public employee benefits is paying off for taxpayers.
“My friends on the other side of the aisle have absolutely no business criticizing this budget – that spends less than a budget they voted for in 2008 – while delivering more bang for taxpayers’ bucks – especially those who may have voted against the very reforms that have exponentially improved out state’s fiscal future.”
