TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie hasn't tipped his hand on what
changes he'll make in the $32 billion budget the Legislature delivered this
The Republican governor has until Saturday to decide whether to use his
line-item veto powers on the budget.
Christie's main dispute with the Democrats is over a tax cut.
He wants Democrats to commit to providing the first installment of a 10
percent cut in January.
Legislators have set aside $183 million to fund the cut but implement the cut
until later to make sure the state can afford it.
Democrats and some independent economists say Christie's projections for
revenue growth are overly optimistic.
Christie says Democrats are wrong not to cut taxes now.
He could respond by cutting funding for programs and services Democrats
