From The Newsroom – 01/18/12

Governor's Office/Jody Somers

Governor Chris Christie dropped a bombshell during his Tuesday State of the State address, proposing a 10% state income tax cut across the board for New Jerseyans.

WEDNESDAY’S HEADLINES

  • The Governor laid out his initiatives for 2012, which were highlighted by the income tax cut, education reform, and fixing the state’s inner cities.
  • Democrats unveiled their top plans for 2012 prior to the Governor’s speech.
  • The NJEA was not too thrilled with Governor Christie’s education reform plans.
  • Touting the new income tax cut plan, Christie is taking his message around the nation, doing the rounds of television and radio talk shows.
  • Senate President Steve Sweeney decided to call in to Jim Gearhart to give his thoughts on Christie’s plan:

The exchange added to a dizzying news day that will surely continue as the Governor continues his talk show rounds.

Christie will be a guest of our own “Deminsky and Doyle” at around 5:10PM,  which you can listen to on-air, online, or by downloading the Radio Pup app on your smart phone.

Also, a hat tip to my colleagues, Kevin McArdle, David Matthau, and Dino Flammia for a very long day at the State House, where they provided comprehensive coverage all throughout.

Our poll on Tuesday asked what you were hoping to hear from the Governor’s speech….54% said property tax relief and 20% said education reform.
