(TRENTON) – Assembly Budget Chairman Gary Schaer (D-Passaic/Bergen) released the following statement on Monday:
“The latest credit downgrade suffered by the state of New Jersey under Gov. Christie’s watch is further proof of his continued inability to manage state finances and pursue fiscal prudence and integrity.
“Gov. Christie has not corrected the state’s structural deficit, leading to sluggish economic growth and continued fiscal woes. The governor would benefit the state immeasurably by turning his attention to the problems he has created and failed to fix.”
