Gov Christie decreased the municipal appropriations budget cap to 2.5%. and a 2% tax levy cap. There are similar limits for county government and the amount of outstanding debt.

There's some limited exceptions/wiggle-room to the spending/tax cap for COLA and cap banking up to 3 years.

Before Christie, IIRC, it was McGreevy @ 4%, then 7% prior, etc. with the caps were first enacted in 1977.
