PISCATAWAY – Gov. Chris Christie visited Piscataway this morning for his 81st town hall meeting with New Jersey residents.

The governor touted his accomplishments and continued to put pressure on the Democrat-controlled Legislature to adopt a budget for fiscal year 2013. Under New Jersey’s constitution, the Legislature must pass a balanced budget before July 1.

Christie again pushed his plan for a 10 percent across the board income tax cut that would be phased in over four years, even though tax revenue collections continue to lag behind projections.
