NJGOP Comment On Murphy Pension Payment

It is reported that within the next 24 hours, Governor Murphy will make a quarterly contribution of $684 million to the State pension system on time and in full.

In response, NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement:

“If a reasonable person made a list of 100 things the state of New Jersey should invest in, you would probably see important agenda items like aid to small businesses, veterans, our children’s education or help for more than 1.3 million unemployed New Jerseyans. Only Governor Murphy and the public sector union bosses that own him would prioritize a more than half billion dollar payment into the State’s broken public pension system. It’s just another example of Phil Murphy’s private sector pain paying for public sector gain.”
