STATEMENT FROM ASSEMBLY SPEAKER OLIVER

Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver released the following statement today:

“The Governor’s comments are completely unproductive and do nothing to help advance the reform effort. The Assembly has been here working on meaningful and effective reforms and in fact today will be advancing and developing legislation. The governor should know this, since we have been working with his administration. Needless to say, the members of the New Jersey General Assembly are fully aware of their obligations and responsibilities to the taxpayers of this state and to the constituencies they collectively represent. Verbal sparring and combative language serves no one.”
