CRYAN: GOVERNOR’S POLICIES A PROVEN FAILURE

Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Cryan (D-Union) released the following statement Tuesday on the state Supreme Court’s school funding order:

“This order makes clear that this governor has failed New Jersey’s most at-risk school children with the very same budget policies that delivered the highest property tax increase in four years to New Jersey taxpayers.

“Basically, this governor’s philosophy of above all protecting the rich has now been soundly rejected.

“The governor may not want to take up his responsibility to govern, but the Assembly stands ready to lead and provide a plan that not only protects at-risk children, but helps property taxpayers beleaguered by the governor’s tax increases.”
