Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement on the Governor’s signing of the Fiscal Year 2020 budget:
“The responsible and thoughtful budget the Governor signed into law today funds our shared priorities. I’m particularly pleased that we stood up for the middle class by expanding the Senior Freeze Property Relief Tax program, doubling the veterans’ income tax deduction and providing for almost $150 million in property tax relief along with increasing funding for NJ transit.
“There is still work to do to improve the lives of our friends and neighbors. The Assembly is committed to working with the Governor and the Senate to continue to address the issues that matter most to the nine million residents of the Garden State.”
