MAJORITY LEADER CRYAN: GOV. CHRISTIE’S PLAN TROUBLESOME FOR HARD-WORKING NEW JERSEYANS

(TRENTON) — Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Cryan (D-Union) released the following statement Thursday on Gov. Christie’s speech:

“The Assembly Democratic Majority will now begin the hard work of analyzing the governor’s proposal, and it’s going to be a long, hard look.

“Many aspects of Gov. Christie’s proposal will lead to sharp and sudden property tax increases and will hurt small businesses amid a recession. That’s troublesome for hard-working New Jerseyans who won’t even be able to comment on this plan because Gov. Christie did this unilaterally.

“I also can’t help but wonder whether this problem could have been lessened had we received a decisive proposal from Gov. Christie sooner than under the spotlights of Thursday’s televised speech.”
