Majority Leader Greenwald Statement on FY2020 State Budget Put Forth by Legislative Democrats

The Assembly Budget Committee cleared a Fiscal Year 2020 budget bill presented by Assembly and Senate Democrats Monday. Following passage, Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden, Burlington) issued the following statement:

“Year after year, New Jersey’s sky-high property taxes are the number one issue for Garden State residents. Our budget provides a much-needed $175 million for property tax relief.

“Our budget also provides more funding for seniors, veterans, higher education, NJ Transit, food banks, SNAP and more. This spending plan meets the needs of New Jerseyans and it reflects our priorities and those of the Governor.

“I’m proud of this budget and I’m thrilled we could craft a plan that doesn’t include any broad-based taxes.”
