Gov. Christopher Christie has kept his campaign promise to make tough, responsible decisions to balance the state budget, said GOP State Chairman Jay Webber.
“Today, the Governor laid out what can best be described as a down payment on a future for New Jersey full of economic growth, optimism, and innovation,” said Webber (R-Morris Plains), a two-term Assemblyman. “Governor Christie correctly diagnosed New Jersey’s budget condition as being in a ‘state of fiscal emergency,’ and put forth a plan to address it that is both creative and necessary. The Governor’s solutions attack waste and inefficiency, identify and utilize savings, and cut spending. They deserve our full support.”
