Senate Republican Budget Officer Anthony Bucco (R-Morris) stated the following in response to the State Budget Overview and Revenue Forecast Hearings with the Office of Legislative Services and the State Treasurer:

“I’m proud that Governor Christie has presented us with another budget proposal that focuses on the people and not political interests. This proposal exercises fiscal restraint by budgeting for everyone’s future. The budget makes the largest-ever investment in our students with nearly $13 billion, and makes the largest-ever $2.25 billion pension payment. It cuts millions of dollars in discretionary spending while saving several million dollars by streamlining state government.

Bucco: Residents Deserve More from NJ DEP

Senator Anthony Bucco (R-Morris) said the children and families impacted by the Fenimore Landfill in Roxbury Township deserve more from their state Department of Environmental Protection than Tuesday night’s public hearing.

“I am disappointed that DEP representatives only came to tell hundreds of resident victims how they would cap the landfill, rather than conduct a true hearing to fully listen and take into consideration information from those suffering in the community that have performed extensive research on this issue,” Bucco said. “When government forgets even for a moment that it is beholden to the people, everyone loses.”

Senate Republican Budget Officer Anthony Bucco (R-Morris) stated the following about today’s New Jersey Budget address by Gov. Chris Christie:

“Gov. Christie has again produced a state budget for the people, with the largest single contribution for education, the largest-ever pension payment, increased aid to Superstorm Sandy victims and $1.2 billion in direct property tax relief. This budget will also help create jobs by continuing bipartisan tax reforms that will allow employers to spend an additional $600 million to grow and improve their operations, instead of having to fund excessive government.

Christie Signs Bucco’s ‘Dusty’s Law’ & Bills Addressing Fire Safety, Unemployment Benefits

Gov. Chris Christie has signed Senator Anthony Bucco’s “Dusty’s Law” to establish criminal penalties for killing, injuring, or interfering with a service animal or guide dog.

“Guide dogs and service animals are vital to the lives of New Jersey’s most vulnerable and impaired people, and their highly specialized training comes at great expense,” said Bucco (R-Morris). “Killing or injuring these animals is beyond just an act of animal cruelty or destruction of property. It is a crime against the people with disabilities who rely on these animals. I believe these instances must be treated with a greater degree of severity than the average case of human cruelty or dog-on-dog aggression.”

The Senate gave final legislative approval today to Senator Anthony Bucco’s legislation to require an emblem be placed in the front of all structures, except for one- or two-family residential buildings, served by rooftop or adjacent solar energy systems.

“As a member of the state Fire Safety Commission, I’ve heard the stories and paid close attention to unfortunate incidents involving firefighters’ more complicated battles with burning buildings that have solar energy systems,” said Bucco (R-Morris). “This common-sense legislation will protect the safety of firefighters and make them better prepared to do their dangerous jobs. Bottom line, it’s a simple act of preparation by people that can save lives.”
