Assembly vote on Murphy’s Borrowing Scheme

June 4, 2020
Statement from NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt regarding the Assembly vote on Governor Murphy’s multi-billion dollar borrowing scheme:
“This COVID-19 crisis has tested the bounds of governments everywhere, and Phil Murphy’s failing that test. He chose Wall Street over Main Street, big box stores over mom and pop shops, and the public sector over private business. Today, Governor Murphy and the Democratic led Assembly are picking big government and big taxes over you and your family. Assembly Bill A-4175 will jack up your property taxes year after year to pay the interest on the billions of dollars in bonds Phil Murphy will issue to keep spending. 
“The only thing Phil Murphy learned from this crisis, is that in the highest taxed State in America, he’s not afraid to keep taking more. Join the NJGOP and tell Phil Murphy no more taxes.”
