Gov. Christie confident pension cuts will be approved

Posted: Updated:
TRENTON - Governor Christie says he's confident that his plan to slash the state's pension contributions will receive a judge's approval, adding that he has no "Plan B" for balancing the state budget if it doesn't.

Last month, Christie called for cutting $2.5 billion in planned state pension contributions for public workers between now and June 2015.

That came after tax revenues were far lower than he expected.

Last week, unions for public employees began filing lawsuits.

A court hearing is scheduled for just days before lawmakers must adopt a balanced budget.
