Oroho: Fiscally Responsible Budget Grows Jobs Not Government

Senate Republican Budget and Appropriations Committee member Steve Oroho applauded Senate approval of a fiscally responsible budget that looks to the long term health of the state.

“This budget shows that with responsible leadership we can make government work effectively to better New Jersey through economic growth and a better education for our children,” said Oroho (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris). “It’s refreshing to see a spending plan that positions the state to add new business and jobs rather than to add more waste in Trenton.

“For the third year under Governor Christie’s leadership this budget continues common sense business tax reforms that have fostered increasing private sector job gains and an improving economy. By continuing these measures, we are taking a step toward making our communities places where our residents have jobs and thrive.

“By lessening the burden on businesses the budget improves the state’s competitive economic position and sets the path toward sustainable economic growth.

“I also applaud Governor Christie for recognizing the need to change the nonsensical “geographic cost adjustment” of the school funding formula because it unfairly hurt rural districts.

“Remarkably, while this budget provides record funding for school aid and the state’s pension system, it does so while not only holding the line on taxes but also while still spending less than the Corzine administration spent in 2008. It goes to show that with fiscal restraint and proper priorities, we can develop spending plans that put residents’ hard earned tax dollars to work for their good.”
