Chris Christie Gives Up on Tax Cut Plan

Gov. Chris Christie is not trying to bring back a tax cut plan that died in the Legislature last year.

In his budget address a year ago, Christie called for a 10 percent income tax cut. He later agreed to cut property taxes instead.

Neither plan was included in the budget proposal he delivered on Tuesday.

The Republican says he still believes New Jersey residents are overtaxed and pointed out that many lawmakers have voted for tax increases that he has vetoed.

Christie says his tax cut plan could be revived if lawmakers want to go along with it.

He also suggested it would be a campaign issue as he runs for re-election this year, likely against Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono.
