Schaer, Mazzeo, McKeon & Houghtaling Bill Promoting Shared Services Clears Committee

Both lowering the coasts to taxpayers and increasing government efficiency, legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Gary Schaer, Vincent Mazzeo, John McKeon and Eric Houghtaling was approved by the Assembly State and Local Government Committee on Thursday.

“For homeowners in New Jersey, property taxes are the greatest burden,” said Schaer (D-Bergen/Passaic). “Sharing a tax administrator and clerical assistance is a common sense way to reduce costs to the taxpayers without losing services.”

McKeon, Mukherji & Murphy Legislation to Help Disabled Residents and Seniors Pay Utility Bills Clears Assembly Panel

To ensure elderly and disabled residents have continued access to vital utilities like water and sewer service, an Assembly panel approved Monday a bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats John McKeon, Raj Mukherji and Carol Murphy that would expand the law to cover more residents and utilities under the Lifeline Credit and Tenants Lifeline Assistance Programs.

"These programs currently provide a 'lifeline' to our most vulnerable residents who are unable to pay their electric and gas utilities," said McKeon (D-Essex, Morris). "Water and sewer bills also can be a burden for residents on a fixed income. These utilities should also be included under Lifeline programs."
