McKnight & Chiaravalloti Statement on Horizon-Budget Agreement

(TRENTON) – Assembly Democrats Angela McKnight and Nicholas Chiaravalloti (both D-Hudson) issued the following statement after today’s announcement that an agreement had been reached on the FY 2018 budget:

“We have been committed to doing what is right for New Jerseyans throughout this budget process. That is why we stood in solidarity with Speaker Prieto. We’re glad that after the governor’s shutdown, we have a compromise that protects Horizon policyholders and our Democratic principles. Our concerns were always with the impact on taxpayers and Horizon ratepayers who would have been impacted by the governor’s callousness.”
