Buono Statement On The Budget Address

TRENTON – Senator Barbara Buono, D- Middlesex and Chair of the Senate Democratic Conference, made the following statement after Governor Codey’s Budget Address:

“It’s time to realize that out of control spending has been a problem for both Democrats and Republicans in recent years.

“The actions of the past have put us in a difficult fiscal position today. The budget proposals set forth by Governor Codey today are a good start down the path toward fiscal responsibility – a path that will require a great deal of give and take from both Democrats and Republicans and from both the Governor and the Legislature.”
