|Bucco: Murphy Must Detail Plans for Fixing Broken Unemployment, MVC & Vaccine Computer Systems
Senator Anthony M. Bucco expressed disappointment that Governor Phil Murphy failed to offer details of plans to modernize and fix critical computer systems in his State budget proposal for FY 2022 that was unveiled today.
“Over the past year, millions of New Jerseyans have suffered due to broken and outdated State computer systems that are responsible for unemployment benefits, MVC transactions, and scheduling vaccine appointments,” said Bucco (R-25). “When Governor Murphy is sitting on a multi-billion budget surplus, it’s beyond disappointing that he was unwilling to detail any planned investments in upgrading these critical systems that people depend upon.”
Bucco discussed the importance of fixing the broken computer systems in an NJ.com editorial published this weekend.
The Governor dedicated a single sentence of his Budget Message to the issue.
“We now know that the budget surplus is much bigger than we anticipated,” added Bucco. “Fixing the broken systems matters to New Jerseyans, it should matter to Governor Murphy, too. If he really plans on funding these projects, he shouldn’t hide the details.”
