RUMANA: BUDGET PLAN PROTECTS TAXPAYERS’ INTERESTS DESPITE DIFFICULT TASK OF REBUILDING

Assembly Republican Whip Scott Rumana, R-Passaic, Bergen, Essex and Morris, issued the statement below today following Governor Christie’s Fiscal Year 2013-2014 budget address to a Joint Session of the Legislature:

“As a result of the fiscal controls implemented by Governor Christie since he has been in office, he is again able to present taxpayers with another pragmatic and responsible plan that protects their interests despite the enormous challenges presented by Super Storm Sandy.

“His budget proposal reflects his continued commitment to fund key programs for the most vulnerable, provide for our students through increased aid to our schools while maintaining excellence in healthcare by sustaining hospital funding.

“The governor’s pro-growth policies have resulted in the creation of more than 103,000 private sector jobs since 2010. Taxpayers and the business community have every reason to remain optimistic as we move forward with the state’s recovery and rebuilding efforts.”

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"When you're asked to cast a vote on a bill and it seems innocuous, and it's got a hidden land mine that perhaps only an expert would see, it would sort of behoove those experts to tell us in advance rather than make us look, shall we say, a little bit indecisive later on." - Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-25).
