WESTFIELD, N.J. – United Van Lines’ 42nd annual National Movers Study found that New Jersey is once again the most moved from state in the country, topping the list for at least the fifth consecutive year with 66.8 percent of movers leaving.
Assembly GOP Leader Jon Bramnick is echoing economists who say the main reason is that the New Jersey is too expensive, and the cost of living is driving people to other states. He says it will get worse with one-party rule.
“This is what happens with Murphy and the Trenton Democrats: people don’t want to live in a place they can’t afford,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “Trenton Democrats keep raising taxes and spending as if that were the solution, but they are only making it harder for people to afford to live here. Republicans have a plan, and that is to cut taxes and spending and actually address the property tax problem.”
