Speaker Coughlin Statement on

Passing of Governor Florio

 

(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement in response to the passing of former Governor Jim Florio:

“Governor Florio was not afraid of a challenge and took on big issues, courageously. Proud to call him a friend, today we honor his life and legacy, marked by a storied career in public service and a longstanding commitment to New Jersey in the decades after. Whether permanently protecting the Pinelands, driving down auto insurance rates or enacting stricter gun safety laws, Governor Florio’s legislative record left an indelible mark on New Jerseyans. Tish and I extend our deepest condolences to Lucinda and the family. He will be missed.”
