“During today’s JBOC meeting, it was clear that my colleagues on both sides of the aisle were unsatisfied with the lack of a comprehensive plan from the Murphy administration for spending billions in pandemic relief funds effectively.

“Republicans have repeatedly been calling for a strategic plan since April when we issued our detailed blueprint, including last week when the Governor’s incomplete proposal was shared with us.

“I sincerely hope JBOC will not rubberstamp another inadequate spending proposal from the Murphy administration. New Jersey needs a real plan to solve big problems.”
