Trenton, N.J. – Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso is objecting to Gov. Phil Murphy’s plan to raise state spending by $4.5 billion dollars next fiscal year.
“The governor should focus on cutting taxes instead of his out of touch, out of control spending,” said DiMaso (R-Monmouth). “Families are struggling to survive because of his flawed policies, and he can’t spend his way out of that problem.”
DiMaso noted that Democrats said last year that allowing Murphy to borrow up to $9 billion was necessary to meet revenue shortfalls, but revenues exceeded his expectations by more than $3.2 billion.
“Instead of giving money back to struggling businesses, which have been decimated this year, or paying back some of the unnecessarily borrowed funds, the governor just keeps spending.”
