Hard Decisions, Unpopular Choices Have Fueled New Jersey’s Comeback

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Scott Rudder and Assembly Chris Brown (all R-Burlington) issued the following statements after Governor Chris Christie’s State of the State address to a joint session of the New Jersey Legislature.

Senator Addiego:

“We have made significant progress over two years of Governor Christie’s leadership. We have worked alongside the Governor to rein in out-of-control spending and pass long-term reforms. Now we are moving in the right direction. Because we made the tough choices in 2010 and 2011, we are going to bring tangible relief to taxpayers with income tax cuts and the full restoration of the Earned Income Tax Credit for working families. While other states are still being forced to increase taxes, New Jersey residents will benefit with more money in their pockets, and more economic opportunity in the future.”

Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R- Union) issued this statement following Governor Christie’s 2012 State of the State Address:

“In government, we should do what is proven to work and learn from what has failed.

“New Jerseyans are more optimistic about the future of our state and her economy today than they have been in years because legislative Republicans and Governor Christie have taken our state in a different direction.

“What we’ve been doing is working, despite the doomsday, class warfare predictions of those who were happy to continue spending money we didn’t have and raising taxes to pay for it.

During Hurricane Irene, many residents in the 16th Legislative District, which covers parts of Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, and Somerset counties, were forced to abandon their homes due to flooding. In the Borough of Manville alone, hundreds of homeowners were forced to leave their homes, many of whom have not as yet been able to return. For too many residents, this was the not first time. In fact, for many residents, it was the fourth time in the past 11 years they were forced to abandon their homes due to flooding.

Senator Kip Bateman and Assemblyman Jack M. Ciattarelli, R-Somerset, today said they were very pleased that Gov. Chris Christie signed legislation earlier this week that allows local officials to now use open space funds to purchase flood prone land.
