GREENWALD ON GOVERNOR’S REVENUE CERTIFICATION

(TRENTON) – Assembly Budget Chairman Lou Greenwald (D-Camden) released the following statement Friday on the governor’s revenue certification:

“The governor, of course, has the right to certify revenues, but we disagree with him and have good reason to do so.
“Last year, the governor missed the mark on his revenue certification, and valuable programs such as property tax relief for senior citizens, health care for women and education for our children suffered because of it.
“We trust our own figures and remain hopeful the governor will put his obsession with building his national conservative credentials aside and instead do what’s right for working class residents and accept our spending plan.”
