Eustace & Lagana: Democratic Budget Deserves our Support

Assemblymen Tim Eustace and Joe Lagana (both D-Bergen/Passaic) issued the following statement on today’s budget vote:

“We have a budget that adheres to our Democratic principles and provides for working families, and yet the governor is considering a government shutdown that would make life harder for residents. Taxpayers should not be penalized because of the governor’s whims. The Horizon bill is about one thing: helping the governor on his redemption tour. We’re tired of the governor’s bullying tactics. We are not willing to support a bill that is harmful to policyholders just to appease the governor. We hope our colleagues will agree.”
