RIBLE STATEMENT ON GOV’S BUDGET ADDRESS
Assembly Republican Conference Leader Dave Rible, R-Monmouth and Ocean, issued the statement below following Governor Christie’s Fiscal Year 2014 budget proposal before a Joint Session of the Legislature today:
“Governor Christie’s proposed budget strikes a necessary balance between funding important priorities, such as educational aid and meeting our pension obligation payment, and keeping taxes under control. For the fourth year, taxpayers are seeing that fiscal responsibility remains a top priority for Governor Christie. For many years, New Jersey’s taxpayers were delivered spending spree budgets that paved the way for our state having the highest property taxes in the country. Under Governor Christie, government is focused on running efficiently while continuing to provide and fund essential services.”

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
