NJGOP Statement on supreme court hearing from Chairman Doug Steinhardt:

“Thank you to Senator Michael Testa Jr, Mark Sheridan, and all the plaintiffs in this case for helping our party make a strong, unified argument to the New Jersey Supreme Court today.

“The State struggled to prove that Phil Murphy’s $10B borrowing and property tax scheme is anything more than giving Murphy a credit card for his reckless liberal spending habits at the expense of 9 million NJ families trying to make ends meet. Ultimately, the State was unable to provide any limiting principles on what this debt would be spent on, including building a sports stadium or making debt payments on prior bonds.

“We were pleased to stand up for average New Jerseyans today, firmly believe our argument won the day, and look forward to the Court’s decision.”
