ANGELINI: CHRISTIE DELIVERS ANOTHER ALL-INCLUSIVE, BALANCED BUDGET
Republican Deputy Conference Leader Mary Pat Angelini, R-Monmouth, issued the following statement regarding Gov. Christie’s Budget Address which was delivered today before a Joint Session of the Legislature:
“In the days following the most catastrophic natural disaster to hit New Jersey, Governor Christie assured stunned residents that he would do everything in his power to help rebuild our state. The budget he proposed today makes good on that pledge as it provides for an investment in our future through contingency funding for recovery and rebuilding efforts that are so vital for the Jersey Shore as well as the entire state.
“In spite of the many challenges posed by Sandy, the governor has also made it a priority to continue to protect New Jersey’s most vulnerable citizens by increasing funding for individuals with mental health and developmental disabilities, expanding the state’s Drug Court Program and expanding critical health care access through Medicaid. This plan will further our efforts to maintain more efficient government which benefits all taxpayers.”
