A revenue report released Tuesday shows state revenues are $230 million below Gov. Chris Christie’s projections.

The lawmakers want the treasurer to come with a plan to close the current fiscal year’s budget gap and rebalance Christie’s proposed budget for the coming fiscal year.

A spokesman for Sidamon-Eristoff did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
