22 Jun: Codey Applauds Legislative Dems’ FY 2013 Budget

TRENTON – Former Governor Richard J. Codey said today that the Democratic Budget proposal for FY 2013 represents a rational course for the State, ensuring that New Jersey has a healthy surplus, flexibility to address future budget shortfalls, and support for New Jersey’s most vulnerable.

“The Democratic Budget proposal puts New Jersey on a good fiscal footing, making sure that we honor our obligation to look out for the most vulnerable while still creating a responsible surplus to address future budget needs,” said Senator Codey. “This budget is in stark contrast to the Governor’s proposed budget, in which we were going to have to rely on one-shot gimmicks to fund the largest spending increase of any state in the nation. Thankfully, we’ve developed a more rational alternative.”
