In a switch, Christie may end property-tax rebates

By Jonathan Tamari

Inquirer Trenton Bureau

TRENTON - Gov. Christie is considering scaling back or eliminating property-tax rebates in his budget proposal, a move that could yield significant savings but would mean going back on a campaign pledge.

As Christie tries to close a projected $11 billion deficit next fiscal year, scenarios under discussion include slashing the popular but expensive rebates, according to two administration officials with knowledge of budget talks.

They stressed that no final decisions had been made. Christie is scheduled to unveil his budget March 16.

At a cost last year of $1.1 billion, rebates form one of the largest pools of money in the budget. Lawmakers in both parties have said privately for weeks they expect cuts to the program.

Rebates are one of the most tangible ways state government tries to offset New Jersey's high local property taxes, which average nearly $7,300. The program is so large and costly, though, that it is a prime target for governors seeking spending cuts.

"You can't bring the budget into balance without looking at it," said an administration source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Kudos to Governor Christie. There's no way to balance the budget without eliminating this program. Sure, we all like getting that check in the mail but we can survive without it. I'd rather see Christie get this nightmare the democrats created under control.

I agree with you that we have to do away the tax rebate program, I don't understand why we added to the sales tax, which was suppose to be for tax relief, and Gov. Christie wants to let the tax on people who make more then $400,000 be expire, which would cut the states budget by one hundred billion dollars. It puts the increase on the people who can't afford it, the middle class people.

JERSEY CITY -- A lawyer for a former Jersey City deputy mayor convicted in connection with last year’s massive FBI corruption sting has asked a judge to dismiss the verdict, saying political contributions cannot be considered bribes under federal law.

Leona Beldini was found guilty in February in federal court in Newark of accepting $20,000 in illegal campaign contributions in exchange for promising to help secure development approvals. But her lawyer, Brian J. Neary, argued in a 52-page filing that the federal bribery statue does not apply to political donations. `

She was charged in July along with scores of others in a corruption and money-laundering probe anchored by Solomon Dwek, an admitted real estate swindler who became an FBI informant. He spent more than two years posing as a crooked real estate developer trying to trade envelopes of cash for building permits.

Beldini, 75, was treasurer for Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy, and authorities say the cash went into his campaign. But Neary contends in his legal filing that prosecutors failed to prove Beldini ever received anything of value.

U.S. District Judge Jose L. Linares has scheduled a May 21 hearing to consider Neary’s arguments.

LEROY'S PREDICTION...

THIS JUDGE WILL OVERTURN THE GOVERNOR'S SIDESHOW ELECTION CHARADE CONVICTION.

HA -HA -I CAN NOW SEE WHAT REALLY WENT DOWN..

hey tons of fun

Why is the state even funding charter or private schools?

So kids can learn to read and write. Someplace they can go where the money is spent on the kids instead of the superintendent.
