(Trenton) - As chair of the Assembly Appropriations Committee, Assemblyman John J. Burzichelli (D-Cumberland, Gloucester, Salem), issued a statement in response to the Governor's budget address in the General Assembly chambers:
"Overall, the Governor gave a good speech. Yet, like always, it lacked in detail and glossed over issues truly significant to New Jersey residents.
"People are looking for relief from sky-rocketing unemployment rates, perpetual home foreclosures and what are still the highest property taxes in the country. They need real conversations and real solutions that will support the middleclass, provide healthcare for women and allow low-wage workers to earn more.
"The new ideas he proposed today sound good, but as they say, 'the devil is in the details.' Where will the money come from to support these programs?
"With Sandy, unemployment, health care, economic growth and job creation on our plates, we have a lot to do. No more promises, Governor. Let's keep focused and fulfill the promises you've already made."
