Legislation that would fully restore the earned income tax credit is being sent to Gov. Chris Christie. The bill would restore the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) level to 25 percent of the federal credit amount. Governor Christie reduced the credit to 20 percent in his FY2011 budget. The bill was approved in the Senate last week with a vote of 27-1 and in the General Assembly on Thursday with a vote of 46-24-5.
