Steinhardt: Murphy Prioritizing Government Union Bosses Over Average New Jerseyans
.
Trenton, NJ –  It is reported that effective June 30, Governor Murphy will make a quarterly contribution of $684 million to the State pension system on time and in full.
.
In response to Governor Murphy’s administration announcing that he will continue to make full payments into the broken State pension system, NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement:
.
“Governor Murphy is desperate to appease the public sector union bosses who fund his agenda, but is less willing to lift a finger for the rest of New Jersey. He is pushing a $10 billion borrowing scheme and begging for a federal bailout just so he can make billions of dollars of payments into a broken State pension system and its debt service, rather than invest in aid to small businesses, veterans, our children’s eduction or 1.1 million unemployed New Jerseyans.”
