Two South Jersey Republicans are offering to take a 10 percent pay cut off their $49,000 legislative salaries as part of their efforts to share this year's budget pain with the rest of the state.

Assemblywoman Dawn Marie Addiego and Assemblyman Scott Rudder, both Burlington County Republicans, said the cut would take their legislative pay down to $44,100 and that they have proposed a bill to make the reduction permanent for all lawmakers.

"Every resident of New Jersey is being asked to take a hit to the wallet, and as legislators, we should not be immune. We need to be leading by example,” Rudder said.
