As NJ Legislature Democrats Prepare to Vote on 2020 Budget, Nick Sacco Says Conflict Among Democrats Isn’t Healthy

As lawmakers consider the NJ 2020 budget, Democratic caucus members mostly seemed resigned to voting for a budget that will not contain Governor Phil Murphy’s desired millionaire’s tax. Senator Nick Sacco says the current in-fighting among Democrats is not healthy.

As lawmakers prepare to go back to Trenton tomorrow to consider the NJ 2020 budget, Democratic caucus members mostly seemed resigned to voting for a budget that will not contain Governor Phil Murphy’s desired millionaire’s tax.

Others shook their heads at current circumstances.

“It’s not healthy when Democrats are fighting with Democrats,” veteran state Senator Nick Sacco (D-32) told InsiderNJ.

Murphy has said he “pressure will intensify, not lessen” for a millionaire’s tax in the $38 billion budget.

Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) last week told allies that if the governor vetoes the budget, the senate will override him.
