LETTER – Dems Seek $240 Million in Unfunded Spending as Roads and Bridges Crumble

Assemblyman Dave Rible, R-Monmouth and Ocean, issued the following statement regarding today’s legislative agenda in the General Assembly:

 

“Today’s agenda represents the misguided priorities of the majority party, which is seeking to spend nearly $240 million through today’s legislation alone. The residents of New Jersey are watching their property taxes increase while their roads and bridges crumble. Funding our Transportation Trust Fund is just one of many critical issues that remains unaddressed while the majority party pushes through legislation that contains hundreds of millions of dollars in new spending.  I am hopeful that we can finally stop this type of irresponsible spending that has put our state in a dire financial situation and left us unable to meet our current needs.”
