“Over the past year, millions of New Jerseyans have suffered due to broken and outdated State computer systems that are responsible for unemployment benefits, MVC transactions, and scheduling vaccine appointments,” said Bucco (R-25). “When Governor Murphy is sitting on a multi-billion dollar budget surplus, it’s beyond disappointing that he was unwilling to detail any planned investments in upgrading these critical systems that people depend upon.”

Bucco discussed the importance of fixing the broken computer systems in an NJ.com editorial published this weekend.

The Governor dedicated a single sentence of his Budget Message to the issue.

“We now know that the budget surplus is much bigger than we anticipated,” added Bucco. “Fixing the broken systems matters to New Jerseyans, it should matter to Governor Murphy, too. If he really plans on funding these projects, he shouldn’t hide the details.”
