Christie says he will announce budget cuts if and when they are made

LITTLE FERRY – While Gov. Chris Christie may be preparing to speak about the upcoming year’s budget in just a few days, the state still must grapple with a shortfall under the current budget.

The governor told reporters Wednesday he will make adjustments where necessary to address the state’s current shortfall.

“Obviously if there’s a shortfall there will be reductions,” Christie said during a news conference here.

The governor said he will announce any cuts when he’s ready and then promptly moved on to the next question.

Christie is slated to deliver his budget address next week.
