Sen. Michael Testa speaking against the FY 2023 State Budget during a floor debate in the New Jersey Senate on Wednesday, June 29, 2022. (

“I spoke up for New Jersey’s taxpayers who were left out of Governor Murphy’s $50+ billion budget. Trenton had a chance to do right by the taxpayers and small businesses who make this state work, but it didn’t do that.

“A few insiders decided they know how to spend your hard-earned tax money better than you do. They think they know better than you. We wanted to send your tax overpayments back to you. That’s freedom.

“I voted ‘NO’ on the bloated Murphy budget and oppose the unfair and partisan way this budget was put together. New Jerseyans deserve better.”

Here is Senator Testa’s floor speech opposing the passage of the budget:
