Assemblywoman Pintor Marin on Murphy Budget Address

Assemblywoman Eliana Pintor Marin (D-Essex), Budget Committee Chair, issued the following statement Tuesday following Gov. Phil Murphy’s Fiscal Year 2020 budget address:

“The budget the governor proposed represents a strong starting point. As Assembly Budget chair, I can promise the committee will pour over the Governor’s proposal to determine how taxpayer money should be allocated, but also to look first at government efficiencies. I am happy the Governor agrees with the Legislature and did not include a Sales Tax increase, and I am confident that in the end we will have a budget that reflects our priority of making our state more affordable.”
