Speaker Coughlin Statement on U.S. News and World Report

Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement on the Best States ranking of U.S. states provided by U.S. News and World Report:

“The recent U.S. News and World Report citing New Jersey as the 12th best state to live in is welcome news. The Garden State moved seven slots above last year’s ranking, continuing to outperform other states in education and health care. Our state will continue to excel in not only health care and education but in public safety and infrastructure. As we move forward into budget season, I am confident we will build upon our economic successes and make New Jersey a place where all residents and businesses feel welcome and create new opportunities.”
