Pallone Applauds Murphy’s Call to Invest in New Jersey
Long Branch, NJ- Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement on today’s budget speech by Governor Murphy.
“I continue to be impressed by Governor Murphy’s strong leadership and willingness to take on the challenges facing our state. He has already taken steps to make our state more tolerant, fair and innovative in his first months in office and today’s speech shows his determination to continue these efforts.
“I am especially encouraged by the Governor’s commitment to education, including his push for tuition free community colleges and making 4 years institutions more affordable. Unlike President Trump, Governor Murphy follows through on his promises on infrastructure and provides desperately needed funds for NJ Transit. Whether it’s calling for funding for women’s health, creating a research center for gun violence center, or much needed action on so many other crucial issues, Governor Murphy is moving New Jersey in the right direction and I will do everything I can to support his bold agenda.”
