(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) on Thursday issued a statement following the release of a report from the Economic and Fiscal Policy Working Group.
The group was convened back in February to study tax and fiscal policies in the state and make recommendations on how to improve them.
“Affordability is a real issue for New Jerseyans. I commend the panel for their commitment and contributing their time and expertise towards this noble effort to address property taxes and other critical issues facing our state. Now that the panel’s list of recommendations to the legislature has been made public, we will begin to take a thoughtful look at their proposals and seek input from our legislative members as to how to best move forward.”
