SPENDING CUT SUGGESTION TOOL ADDED TO GOVERNOR’S WEBSITE
Requests Citizen Input to Help Gauge Priorities of Upcoming State Budget
TRENTON – Governor Jon S. Corzine today unveiled a new tool on his website allowing citizens to suggest spending cuts in the upcoming State Budget. In recent weeks during a series of town hall meetings the Governor has received numerous suggestions on how to cut spending. This new tool will give more citizens an opportunity to voice their opinion in an effort to help shape the upcoming FY09 State Budget. The website is part of the Governor’s ongoing commitment to have an open and honest discussion with New Jerseyans about the financial future of our state.
The web tool can be found by going to www.nj.gov/governor and clicking on the “Direct Citizen Input on Reducing Spending” button. In addition to their suggestions, citizens are asked to provide their name and email address as well as their town and county of residence.
