Greenwald doesn’t accept Treasury’s reasoning on revenue collection drop

TRENTON – Lou Greenwald isn’t buying the Administration’s reasons behind lower-than-expected revenue collections.

 “The treasurer blaming poor revenue collections on the weather is like a child blaming the dog for eating his homework,” Greenwald, the Assembly Budget chairman, said in a release. “That excuse wouldn’t fly with a teacher and it won’t work for taxpayers, either.”

“If the best they can do is blame the weather, then it’s no wonder hard-working men and women in New Jersey continue to struggle to make ends meet.

“The reality is that, unfortunately, figures like these are to be expected until the governor joins Democrats in focusing on job creation and economic growth.”
