Trenton NJ, Over the weekend, The Star Ledger warned that New Jersey is facing what they describe as a $1.2 billion “Pension Bomb”.
The combination of a scheduled payment of the state’s first full recommended pension contribution and Governor Murphy’s reckless rush to lower the assumed rate of return of the system’s investments have created a year-over-year increase of more than $1.2 billion in what taxpayers must pay to keep the public pension system afloat.

Trento
n NJ, Following reports and video footage of Congressman Malinowski stating that we need illegal immigrants to “mow our beautiful lawns” and laughing at the idea of his educated audience mowing lawns, NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt had the following strong message for the Congressman:“Plenty of legal New Jersey residents landscape for a living or cut their own grass. They would all be mortified by your limousine liberal, elitist comments. You drawing a parallel between one’s intellectual capacity and their willingness to do manual labor just shows how out of touch you are with your constituents. We are all coming to understand what it means to have a Congressman who rents in New Jersey and lives in Washington, and we don’t like it. Apologize for your offensive comments if you want, but we all see you now Congressman.”

Newark NJ, after spending the better part of the last 2 years attacking everything that is “Trump”, New Jersey officials failed to take any action to fix Newark’s water problems . Several other New Jersey cities are currently facing a similar fate.

But in a joint statement issued Sunday afternoon, Gov. Phil Murphy and Mayor Ras Baraka said safe drinking water was critically important and called on the federal government to help.

The EPA tested and found high levels of lead with filters in two residences in Newark. The agency strongly encouraged the city of Newark to take immediate action. DEP Commissioner McCabe responded to EPA that, “EPA has not offered any support in providing bottled water to the city or in distributing that bottled water. Given the concerns EPA has here, we hope that EPA will offer assistance promptly.”

Trenton NJ, Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean released the following statement on a report from leading academics on “Improving New Jersey’s Legislative Apportionment Process.”

“Last year, we raised the alarm when Democrats attempted to fast-track a constitutional amendment that would have made legislative elections less competitive while cementing permanent Democratic majorities in the New Jersey Legislature,” said Kean (R-21). “With broad bipartisan support from outside groups and respected academics, we defeated their attempt to rig our elections. Any changes to improve how we reapportion legislative districts should focus on making the process fairer and more transparent.”
