Buono chides gov on budget priorities

In response to the Christie adminisration’s decision to invest an as-yet-undetermined amount of emergency funds to prop up the New Jersey Exposition Authority, state Senate Majority Leader Barbara Buono (D-Metuchen) issued a rebuke.

“What tortured logic calls for cuts in unemployment benefits, after school programs for children and tuition assistance for struggling students and yet dedicates millions of tax payer dollars to a select class of sports enthusiasts to enjoy the governor’s air conditioned box and gives financial carte blanche to sustain a sports authority whose mission has become obsolete?” Buono said in a statement.
