“If the Governor wants to know the real state of the state, all he needs to do is read our Path to Progress report that highlights the significant fiscal challenges that confront New Jersey.
“It ignores fiscal reality for the governor to fail to address the exploding costs of pensions and benefits that threaten the economic future of our state and its residents. The public deserves to know his response to the solutions we proposed and his plan to address this crisis, and the State of the State would have been the appropriate venue to talk about a huge problem confronting State government.
“His singular focus on advancing progressive social policies, while burying his head in the sand on fiscal reforms, will do little to slow the out-migration from New Jersey that continues unabated.”
Oroho serves as the Senate Republican Budget Officer and Co-Chair of the Workgroup.
