Kim Guadagno: Put Horizon Bill Aside, Compromise To Lower Property Taxes Instead
West Long Branch, NJ – On day two of the state government shutdown, Kim Guadagno issued the following statement:
"All sides should look to alternatives to end the shutdown so the people of New Jersey don't have to suffer any longer. The Governor, Speaker and Senate President have all telegraphed they are willing to get out of their corners and come to a compromise. Why not compromise on capping sick pay payouts? They should set aside the Horizon bill for the moment and take up the O'Scanlon-Munoz sick leave bill, which could save up to $2 billion and deliver property tax relief for struggling New Jersey taxpayers."
