“The Legislature spent the past few weeks pushing through a wish list of Governor Murphy’s progressive priorities, including nearly 200 bills yesterday, and today we heard him call for more of the same,” said Bucco (R-25). “Unfortunately, what we didn’t hear from the Governor was any plan to improve affordability for the people of New Jersey. In fact, his call for higher taxes will only add to a combined tax burden that is already among the highest in the nation.”

Among the priorities highlighted by Governor Murphy in his State of the State address was a renewed push for an income tax increase this year.

“Governor Murphy continues to overreach with plans to spend money we don’t have,” added Bucco. “He’s repeating the failed policies of Governors Corzine and McGreevey. The income tax increase that he’s talking about has been tried before. All it did was drive families from New Jersey. Contrary to Governor Murphy’s contention, tax increases do not improve affordability for all of our residents.”
