1ST DISTRICT LAWMAKERS SUPPORT CHRISTIE'S PROPOSED 2.5% CAP

vandrewSenator Jeff Van Drew, Assemblyman Nelson Albano, and Assemblyman Matt Milam today reinforced their support of a constitutional spending cap for government. The three legislators prefer a constitutional cap so that it could only be removed by a vote of the people themselves but would support a 2.5% cap whether done constitutionally or legislatively.

The group also cited the following areas of cost savings:

  • Constitutional rainy day Fund that can never be raided.
  • Constitutionally banning the diversion and raiding of funds and using those dollars for purposes other than what was intended.
  • Constitutionally capping the growth of the State of NJ budget.
  • Reduces the size of the state fleet of vehicles 50% over 5 years.
  • Stop all excessive printing costs and put information online.
  • “If we work hard and in a bipartisan manor, I believe we can get NJ0 back on track for a better and more affordable future. It will require discipline and innovation for all of us,” said Van Drew.
