TRENTON - The state Senate Budget Committee began its breakdown today, a month after Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) proposed a $32 billion budget, the second-largest in state history.

Democrats on the Senate Budget Committee began their breakdown of the proposed budget, slamming what they consider to be the governor's rosy outlook. The Democrats are concerned that the numbers will come up short.

The state treasurer is defending Christie's budget, arguing that New Jersey's economy is growing faster than the rest of the country.
