The following editorial by Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean was published in the 2/29/12 edition of The Asbury Park Press:

KEAN: Income Tax Cut Good for Business

To hear the Governor’s critics tell it, New Jersey’s high income tax rates have no effect on our economic health. To them, the income tax can be raised without consequence to our economy, while reducing rates yields little or no benefit.

New Jersey’s business leaders- the entities responsible for employing the vast majority of the state’s workforce- disagree, however.

Cardinale “Thrilled” by Christie Administration’s Move to Reopen Pascack Valley Hospital

Senator Gerald Cardinale (R- Bergen), issued the following statement upon being informed by the Christie Administration that Pascack Valley Hospital will be granted a “Certificate of Need” to resume full operations as an acute care facility:

“The Governor has informed me that Hackensack University Medical Center will be granted state approval to reopen Pascack Valley Hospital, and I could not be more thrilled,” said Cardinale. “This is the right thing to do for patients, who face 20 to 30 additional minutes of transport time in the event of a medical emergency. It is the right thing to do for our region’s EMS and ambulance services, which have been strained as a result of the hospital’s closing. And it is a boost for the economy in northern Bergen County, which will benefit from the jobs generated and property taxes paid by a reopened Pascack Valley Hospital.”
