TRENTON - Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto said Thursday that the Legislature's budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1 should restore funding cut by Gov. Christie for women's health care and tax credits for low-income individuals.
Prieto (D., Hudson) did not provide a detailed alternative budget plan, but said he wanted to raise taxes on millionaires. His proposal includes $7.5 million for women's health care.
In the past, Christie, a Republican, has vetoed that level of funding for public and private providers of family planning services. He also has vowed not to raise taxes.
