Senator Bryant Suggests Kean Lacks Credibility On Budget

TRENTON – Senator Wayne R. Bryant, Chairman of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, made the following comment after Senator Thomas H. Kean Jr., a former member of the panel, condemned the Corzine Administration’s budget proposal in the context of his U.S. Senate campaign.

“Maybe Senator Kean wants to re-join our committee so he could roll up his sleeves and help us work on the budget over the next three months. That would be the responsible approach to problem solving.

“I don’t put much credibility in his statements on the budget when he’s not willing to serve on the committee.”
