Assemblywoman Eliana Pintor Marin (D-Essex), Budget Committee Chair, issued the following statement Tuesday regarding Gov. Phil Murphy’s Fiscal Year 2021 budget address:
“The Governor’s proposed budget plan provides the Legislature with a clear starting point for the budget process. The hearings to come will allow us to more closely examine the details of his proposal, and work together to ensure that the needs of the state are met.
“The end goal is a fair, responsible financial plan for the next fiscal year that meets the needs of our working, middle-class residents. As chair, I look forward to working with my fellow members of the Budget Committee, the Speaker’s leadership team and the Governor over the coming months.”
