Governor not sure how he will respond to the budget passage

“The Democratic budget passed today by the Senate and the Assembly is unconstitutional in its present form based on hundreds of millions of dollars in spending  that is unsupported by constitutionally certified revenue.   There is a lot for the Governor to study and review in order to make a determination as to whether the budget can be fixed and brought into balance to fulfill the state’s constitutional obligation.  At this time, the Governor can’t be certain if the remedy is the line item veto or whether he needs to consider sending it back to the Legislature.”
