Beck supports core budget but still troubled by ancillary bills

TRENTON – Like her colleague state Sen. Mike Doherty (R-Washington Twp.), state Sen. Jennifer Beck (R-Red Bank) worries about some of the supplemental budget bills but supports Gov. Chris Christie’s core budget.

“This is what Republicans have talked about for four years,” Beck said of the $29.4 billion document, which she concedes has flaws.

“The Abbotts got more money than we were hoping for,” explained the Monmouth County lawmaker, who says school funding forumla reforms remain a top priority.

“New Jersey is in a dire state after the Corzine years,” Beck said.
