Bookmark and Share

Senator Tony Bucco (R-Morris), the Senate Republican Budget Officer, has issued a letter to Governor Corzine calling on him to revise marketing materials that encourage investors to buy $1.925 billion of short term New Jersey debt being sold in the coming days.

The marketing material does not acknowledge an $8 billion structural budget deficit and a more than $2 billion deficit in the State’s Unemployment Compensation Fund that have been estimated by the nonpartisan Office of Legislative Services. The marketing material also does not acknowledge that revenue collections through yesterday suggest a continuing slide in sales tax collections that could erode the State surplus for the current year.

Kyrillos, Jr. (R-Monmouth), the senior member of the Senate Economic Growth Committee, joined his colleagues in calling for the Senate Budget Committee to end its summer break and immediately convene in light of a pending $8 billion structural deficit and a new rating agency threat to downgrade the State’s credit rating.
