While the Federal government is still struggling to do what is necessary to bring our fiscal house in order, the state of New Jersey under the leadership of Governor Chris Christie, is taking steps to address their own budget issues.

New Jersey public workers will have to pay more for health benefits and will receive smaller pensions under a bill that won final approval in the state Legislature.  It had support from both sides of the isle.

As reported by the Wall Street Journal, “Governor Christie, who is expected online pokies to sign the bill on Monday, said it will bring sufficient change to the issue that has roiled private-sector workers who saw their jobs eliminated and salaries and benefits slashed during the recession.”

We are ever hopeful that these positive actions taken by individual states, will at the very least, set a good example for the politicians in Washington, D.C.
