Issue Position: Cap State Spending and Relieve the Burden on Hardworking Taxpayers

Families across New Jersey are tightening their belts to live within their means--and it's time state government did the same. Nelson and Matt support a state spending cap because they don't want to see our tax dollars going toward wasteful pet projects. They fought to lower taxes by introducing a proposal for a constitutional amendment that would require a 2/3 majority vote for bills proposing a new or increased State tax, fee, surcharge or civil penalty.

Together with Senator Van Drew, they fought to cut taxes for small businesses and to restore property tax rebates for homeowners. But more needs to be done. Nelson and Matt support commonsense accountability, including granting the State Comptroller the power to identify and recommend budget reductions for certain State agencies and authorities, as well as requiring State departments to prove that it is more cost effective to contract out for work than performing the services themselves.
