(TRENTON) – Assembly Majority Leader Louis D. Greenwald (D-Camden, Burlington) issued the following statement regarding the Gov. Phil Murphy’s State of the State Address:
“I congratulate Gov. Murphy on his first State of the State Address. I believe his message was well delivered and well received. I think we can all agree that making New Jersey a more affordable state for all residents is a goal to which we must all aspire.
We face many challenges in 2019 including raising the minimum wage to $15 in a fair way, working further to enact common-sense gun safety measures, fixing the problems that continue to plague New Jersey Transit, continuing to work with the Administration on responsible adult-use cannabis legislation and much more.
I’m optimistic that the legislature, as a co-equal branch of government, can work with the Administration on our shared principles. I particularly look forward to working closely with the Governor on addressing the state’s highest-in-the-nation property taxes which consistently ranks atop the list of the issues most important to New Jersey residents.”
