Press release – Voting for tax relief – such as the Assembly Republican plan to provide relief to working and middle class families – should be the Legislature’s top priority, Assembly Republican Deputy Conference Leader Mary Pat Angelini said today.
Angelini criticized a legislative agenda that suggests regulating snapping turtles is a higher priority than helping working- and middle-class families afford New Jersey.
“New Jersey remains one of the worst-taxed states in the nation and our top priority must be tax relief,” Angelini, R-Monmouth, said. “People are tired of waiting for Trenton politicians to act. We need to beef up the Legislature’s agenda and vote for tax relief today.”
Angelini supports an immediate vote on A-4403, the Direct Tax Relief for New Jersey Families Act, recently introduced by several Assembly Republicans.
“Where was all this the foot dragging when Corzine Democrats increased taxes and fees 115 times last decade?” Angelini said. “It’s unfortunate that the only thing the majority party can do faster than raise taxes is find a reason not to cut them.”
