Senate Republican Budget Officer Tony Bucco released the following statement calling on Trenton Democrats to stop playing on the emotions of New Jerseyans in attempt to score election year points:

“As the Trenton Democrats prepare to override Governor Christie’s line item vetoes – which balanced the budget – their continued use of New Jersey’s struggling families and towns as political pawns is disturbing to me.

“Even for Trenton Democrats this latest display of blatant election year maneuvering is shocking. Democrats, who control the Legislature, passed an unconstitutional budget filled with election year spending but they conveniently ignored one thing – a way to pay for it.

Governor Christie Balances Budget While Increasing School Aid

Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean and Senate Republican Budget Officer Tony Bucco praised Governor Christie’s changes to the Democrats illegal, out of balance budget today for heeding Republican calls for added suburban school aid in the context of a balanced, fiscally responsible budget:

“The budget passed by legislative Democrats was political, partisan, and unbalanced from the minute it was introduced,” said Senator Kean. “I commend the Governor for taking the bold action necessary to fill the more than $700 million hole he was handed yesterday by the Majority, and for doing so while increasing aid for suburban districts that are treated unfairly by current school funding law. The Governor has proven what Republicans have been saying all along: we can do right by the taxpayers of New Jersey without resorting to the budget gimmicks and irresponsibility of the past. His changes to the budget will provide a doubling of this year’s suburban school aid increase and unfreeze the ‘Senior Freeze’ program without raising taxes and hurting job creation to pay for it.”

Senate Republican Budget Officer Tony Bucco issued the following comments regarding the Democrats proposed Budget:

“We are required to produce a balanced budget. The state constitution is very clear on this point. However, today, we will consider a budget based on what can only be, at best, described as spurious fiscal assumptions. Case in point, this budget appears to ignore a $300 million shortfall related to the compromises made by the Christie Administration in the pension and benefits reform bill. That shortfall was acknowledged just last week by some of the Majority members of this panel- well before this budget was drafted.
