Legislature Set To Vote On $29.4B Budget Proposed By Gov. Chris Christie

NJ BudgetThe state Legislature today will take final votes on a $29.4 billion state budget that, even after months of debate, contains most of what Republican Gov. Chris Christie proposed back in March. The spending plan — which marks Christie’s first chance to put his stamp on state finances as the state coffers groan under the weight of the recession — slices state aid to towns and schools. The cuts could have a ripple effect on local property taxes. It also nearly eliminates property tax rebates and cuts programs across state government. Star Ledger
