BUCCO STATEMENT ON GOV’S BUDGET ADDRESS
Deputy Republican Leader Anthony M. Bucco, R-Morris and Somerset, who is a member of the Assembly Budget Committee, issued the statement below following Governor Christie’s Fiscal Year 2014 budget proposal before a Joint Session of the Legislature today:
“Governor Christie has proposed a budget that is fiscally prudent and recognizes that we must maintain our commitment to job creation and economic growth. As the budget debate unfolds over the next weeks and months, we must keep in mind that government is most successful when people have a job and businesses are thriving.
“Providing over $200 million in additional tax relief to businesses will encourage them to stay in New Jersey and fuel economic growth. This budget is built on a stronger foundation as it reduces the reliance on one-shot revenues from 13 percent (under Governor Corzine’s last budget) to 3 percent in this plan. With the creation of over 100,000 private sector jobs since Governor Christie took office and the slowest property tax rate increase in the last two decades, New Jerseyans can be confident this governor knows that talking about priorities is not enough. Getting results is what matters.”
