Statement: Kim Guadagno On Budget Negotiations And Government Shutdown

West Long Branch, NJ – Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno released the following statement:

"What is happening with the state budget is a disgusting display of Trenton politics that threatens to grind our state to a halt. With so many problems in New Jersey from property taxes to healthcare, our leaders should be communicating with each other to pass a budget that puts the taxpayers of New Jersey first and separate the Horizon bill from negotiations so it can be thoroughly reviewed. Phil Murphy – as the head of his party – should immediately call his political bosses who are orchestrating this and tell them to stop playing politics with the lives of the people who will be hurt by a government shutdown.” – Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno
