Assembly Speaker Craig J. Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement Monday following the Assembly Budget Committee’s passage of the FY23 budget bill (A-4402):
“I am pleased with the work of the Budget Committee led by Chairwoman Pintor Marin today. We have advanced a budget bill that will deliver for the working and middle-class people and families of our state.
“Our planned investments build meaningfully on the Governor’s proposal and months of public input to support New Jersey communities now and into the future. Representing a steadfast commitment to fiscal responsibility and answering the call for greater affordability with historic tax relief, I will be proud to put this bill up for a vote in the Assembly.
“I thank the Governor and Senate President for their partnership and equal commitment to producing a strong and fair budget that speaks to what New Jerseyans need and value.”
