Speaker Prieto Statement on Supreme Court Pension Ruling

(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson) released the following statement Tuesday on the Supreme Court’s pension funding ruling:

“The ruling changes nothing.
“We’ve always intended to fully fund our obligations, just as we did last year. Democrats will choose the path of responsibility.
“The governor chose last year to be fiscally irresponsible and to further weaken our economy. For the sake of New Jersey’s taxpayers and its economy, I hope he chooses a different course this year.”
