Greenstein Statement on Fiscal Year 2025 Budget

TRENTON – Senator Linda Greenstein, the Vice-Chair of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement on the Senate’s passage of the Fiscal Year 2025 Budget:

“This budget is focused on tackling the problems facing working families: addressing our affordability crisis, delivering a continuation of record high property tax relief for both homeowners and renters, while at the same time creating opportunity so that New Jersey remains the best state to raise a family.

“The investments made by this budget will go a long way over the coming years, including support for our clean energy transition, stable funding for New Jersey Transit so that commuters can continue to rely on transit to get to work, and fully funding our schools. These are all investments in our state’s future, and the future of our next generations.

“Importantly, this year’s budget is also fiscally responsible. It preserves a surplus in case of economic downturns, fully funds state obligations such as pensions, and makes payments to our debts, debts that would only cost more over the long run if not paid now.

“This budget is a reflection of our commitment to working people, and our dedication to making New Jersey a more affordable and more equitable place to live for years to come.”
