TRENTON – Senator Barbara Buono, D-Middlesex and a member of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, made the following statement after Governor Corzine’s Budget Address:
“It is obvious that this budget is a work in progress and over the next few months the Legislature will make major revisions to the Governor’s proposal.
“I am encouraged by this budget’s commitment to constructive solutions rather than one-shot gimmicks. Governor Corzine needed to set a tone of budgetary restraint in his address today and he succeeded. He is building upon the era of honest budgets and reduced spending ushered in by Governor Codey last year.”
