BOONTON — Assemblyman Anthony Bucco rejected Governor Phil Murphy’s second budget for contributing to the state’s unaffordability problem.
“The governor continues to peddle expensive programs that sound nice but carry massive price tags that the state has no ability to pay for – even as we sit on tens of billions of dollars in unfunded liabilities,” said Bucco (R-Morris). “This misguided approach is why we continue to hear proposals in Trenton for higher taxes and state spending that will eclipse 11 percent in just two years. Everyone in New Jersey understands that taxes are crippling for families and businesses, except the governor and his political allies in Trenton. It’s time to get serious about our fiscal challenges and finally make New Jersey more affordable.”
