Governor Murphy delivered his fifth annual budget address on Tuesday, March 8th to New Jersey legislators. The budget’s intention is clear: to ensure that New Jersey’s investments will make the state stronger, fairer, and more affordable. With this plan, the feeling of middle-class stagnation would be left behind in favor of equitable, robust possibilities that will ensure that NJ becomes the “State of Opportunity.” The budget delivers property tax relief to families, provides the highest level of school funding in history, makes pension payments, and supports significant economic investment. Over the past four years, Governor Murphy has cut taxes for the middle-class and working families 14 times. This budget proposal resulted in the upgrading of New Jersey’s credit rating for the first time since 2005.Read more
