Residents to weigh in on Gov. Christie's budget
(AP) - New Jerseyans will get a chance Tuesday to comment on Gov. Chris Christie's (R-N.J.) proposed $29.3 billion budget.
The Senate Budget Committee will hold the first of three public hearings in Paramus.
The proposal cuts aid to schools, towns and colleges. It also suspends property tax rebates and freezes a low-cost health insurance program for adults.
Christie's budget assumes $65 million in new sales tax revenue from lifting Bergen County's Blue Law to allow Sunday shopping.
Another hearing will take place Wednesday in Collingswood and on Thursday in Camden.
