Trenton NJ, according to Assemblyman Kevin J. Rooney,  the New Jersey Senate and General Assembly passed the FY2024 State Budget on Friday, June 30, 2023. I proudly voted AGAINST this bloated spending plan, which increased to a grand total of $54.3 billion. Of this total, nearly 20% — or $10 billion — is surplus, giving New Jersey a “rainy day fund” that is at an all time high. What this budget failed to provide, however, was real tax relief for the majority of New Jerseyans.

The fast-tracked “StayNJ” Legislation was also adopted, and I was one of only two members of the General Assembly to vote against it — mostly due to the fact that there is no evidence the tax incentives for senior citizens will even actually go into effect when the bill dictates in January 2026. Multiple floor amendments were offered by our Republican caucus to bring this tax relief to NJ seniors immediately, all of which were ignored by the Democratic majority. Had the majority been serious about initiating REAL tax relief for seniors — instead of making this bill an election year gimmick for the 2023 legislative and 2025 gubernatorial contests — my vote would have been different.

  1. He’s right
    I”m leaving soon and will spend $$$$$$$ elsewhere

  2. The DNA test was a bit of a shocker !

  3. The ONLY way to keep the property taxes from going up exponentially is to encourage seniors, singles, and those without children who do not use the schools to stay.
    The schools portion of the real estate tax is the majority of the bill.
    These folks subsidize those with children using the schools and if they leave, the homes will be filled with new families from NY using the schools, and requiring more teachers and school buildings.
    Unfortunately the DUMB ASSES in Trenton dont get it
