Speaker Coughlin Statement on Assembly Republicans’ Refusal to Comply with Common Sense Health and Safety Policy

Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement on Thursday in response to Assembly Republicans’ refusal to comply with State House Covid-19 health and safety protocols:

“Today 80,000 families earning up to $150,000 received a tax credit and thousands of hardworking poll workers got a raise despite the fact that a small group of radical Assembly Republicans chose to put showmanship for their own gain above the interests of the working people of our state. Democrats came down to do the people’s business, complying with a reasonable common sense policy that millions of New Jerseyans follow each and every day, and we addressed the most pressing legislative matters.”
