Senator Anthony Bucco, the Senate’s Republican Budget Officer, issued the following statement on yesterday’s Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee hearing on the Governors FY 2014 transportation budget:

“Recognizing that New Jersey taxpayers are tapped out, Governor Christie and his administration are implementing a responsible Transportation Capital Plan that is making critical upgrades and repairs to infrastructure and creating a large number of good paying jobs. That is being done without asking New Jerseyans to reach deeper into their wallets. Critics complaining about a lack of additional revenue need to either tell the taxpayers of New Jersey how much more they want to take from their pockets, or stop complaining.

Bucco (R- Morris) has submitted legislation transferring responsibility for closure of the landfill to state officials.

That is unacceptable.”
