TRENTON (March 20, 2019)– The first public hearing on the proposed state budget by the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee will be held tomorrow at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, said Senator Paul Sarlo, the chairman of the committee.
“This will be the start of the Senate’s work on a state budget that provides vital services in a fiscally responsible way,” said Senator Sarlo. “We want to hear from the public on the needs and priorities for the state’s spending plan. It is more important than ever that we find ways to capture savings and reduce costs so that we have the resources to meet these needs. We want to continue to be able to expand economic opportunities at the same time we have to hold down expenses for the taxpayers.”
- PUBLIC HEARING – Thursday, March 21, 10:00 a.m. at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Campus Center Atrium 150 Bleeker Street, Newark, NJ 07102.
