Singleton, Schaer & Lagana Bill Requiring Governor to Detail New Revenue Proposals Clears Assembly(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assemblymen Troy Singleton, Gary Schaer and Joseph Lagana requiring a clear and concise analysis of new revenue sources proposed by the governor was approved Thursday by the full Assembly.
Under the bill (A-3311), if the governor recommends, in his annual budget message, new or additional sources of revenue that each raise $1,000,000 or more in state funds, the revenue sources must be separately identified and the budget message must include a full and detailed fiscal analysis of these revenue sources.
"Essentially, this change is designed to avoid any delay in disclosure or a less than full and detailed analysis of new or additional revenue sources proposed by the governor," said Singleton (D-Burlington). "In order to produce a budget that's both responsible and compassionate we need to ensure that revenue proposals are not just smoke and mirrors and that the money is being allocated wisely."

It's common sense to examine whether these expenditures are working. It's what the taxpayers deserve."

Sumter and Angelica Jimenez recently introduced legislation to offer a second opportunity at employment to a member of the National Guard or the Reserves who could not accept a position as a police officer or firefighter because of service to the nation.
"Active duty assignments often derail plans for reserve and guard members who apply to join the police or fire department," said Wimberly (D-Bergen, Passaic). "When they are not fulfilling the part-time obligations of the reserves and the guard, we could use them here on our front lines as first responders."
