“This is a sad day for New Jersey. With this decision by the Supreme Court, Murphy will borrow up to $10 billion and impose a property tax on residents to pay for it. Incredibly, the court requires the treasurer, a Governor appointee and key member of his cabinet, to certify the need for the money in the budget. The Governor can now create an inflated budget knowing he has a New Jersey credit card to pay for it.

“New Jersey taxpayers will be paying for this mandate for decades to come.”
