The Clock is Ticking for Assembly Democrats to Pass Reform Efforts, Says Chris Christie

During a town hall in Bergen County today, Governor Christie said with 60 days left in the legislative session, its time for the New Jersey state legislature to “get to the work” he outlined during his State of the State address in January.

“The first thing New Jersey needs is tax relief and I want to cut income taxes 10% across the board, the Democrats’ have their plans and I will work on coming to an agreement with them about this, hopefully soon.”

Christie also focused on teacher tenure reform at the Garfield Recreation Center, where over 400 people were in attendance.

“It’s nearly impossible to fire a bad teacher in this state. In Newark they have 70 teachers who they pay to be there but are not effective in the classroom, yet there is no way to get rid of them.”

The governor also urged the legislature to end sick pay benefits for public officials and to pass his expansion of the drug court program to non-violent offenders.

“There are just 60 days remaining before the budget deadline, so the legislature is on the clock” said Christie.

“The governor can play all the silly games he wants with the clock, but the Assembly Democrats are focused on middle-class and senior citizen property tax relief, job creation and economic fairness for hard working families” said Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver.
