Codey Statement On Status Of Budget Negotiations

TRENTON – Senate President Richard J. Codey today released the following statement on the current status of budget negotiations:

“Today we are at the same place we’ve been for the last two weeks, as I predicted. No agreement has been reached that can pass both houses and be signed into law.

“I intend to be here each and every day working cooperatively with the Governor and the Assembly to find a solution. Keeping the citizens of this state in mind, I also urge the Governor and the Speaker to do everything humanly possible to sit down and find a way to compromise on an agreement. We need to find a way to end the disruption in everyone’s lives so our citizens can continue to enjoy this great state.”
