Gov. Christie gears up for State of the Budget address

WESTFIELD - Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) is scheduled to give his State of the Budget address Tuesday morning.

The governor has some tough decisions to make as he attempts to balance our state's finances. The budget plan is expected to include business tax cuts, higher health insurance costs for workers and a modest increase in property tax relief.

News 12 New Jersey spoke to people in Westfield, who have plenty of suggestions for Christie. Joe Pastor says that government is too big and needs to be trimmed in order to save money. Lois George says that there needs to be cuts, but admit she don't know where the state can afford to trim down. Many also said they're glad they aren't the ones in charge of making tough cuts.
