Testa: Under Murphy Budget, South Jersey Gets Short End of the Stick
Senator Michael Testa issued the following statement in response to Governor Phil Murphy’s budget address:
“Gov. Murphy’s budget continues the Trenton trend of ripping off South Jersey. What we’re seeing are more tax hikes and spending increases that fall on the backs of hardworking families and businesses. Failing to rein in state government’s out-of-control spending will only lead to more New Jerseyans putting one foot out the door to greener pastures in more affordable states.
“South Jersey sent me to Trenton to act as a ‘check and balance’ against Democrat spending sprees. My constituents want lower taxes, more business and job opportunities, and better schools for our kids. I will continue to prioritize fiscal responsibility and pro-business policies so more families can continue to call the Garden State ‘home.’”
