Budget & Appropriations

The Senate Budget & Appropriations Committee, which Senator Pou is a member of, is responsible for reviewing the fiscal impact legislation can have on our state. In tandem with the Assembly Budget Committee, the panel is also charged with creating the Annual Appropriations Act, otherwise known as the State Budget.
 
As a member of the General Assembly, Senator Pou served on the Assembly Appropriations committee from 2001 - 2012, and was Chair of the committee from 2006-2012. In that capacity, she facilitated the passage of legislation pertaining to stem cell research, needle exchange, healthcare, autism treatment, and other high-profile items.
 
Throughout her tenure in the legislator, Pou has committed herself to providing property tax relief for New Jersey families from all walks of life. In fact, during an unprecedented 2006 special session of the Legislature, Pou co-chaired one of four bicameral, bipartisan committees to address property taxes in New Jersey; sixteen of her committee's recommendations were enacted by the Legislature.
