Kenny Says Corzine Crafts Framework For Action

TRENTON – Senate Majority Leader Bernard F. Kenny Jr., D-Hudson, today said Governor Corzine’s call to action on property tax relief and reform set the “right tone for making bipartisan, but difficult” decisions by the Legislature.

“If we all agree on the need for sacrifice, true relief and reform will benefit our taxpayers,” Senator Kenny said. “If we get bogged down on the shape of the table, nobody wins. In fact, we will all lose unless we agree from the outset that our working together is a fundamental necessity to breaking a decades-old logjam.”

Senator Kenny pledged to do whatever is necessary to forge a bipartisan legislative consensus once the Legislature examines the Governor’s recommendations and the work of the legislative panels this summer.

“No one should rest until we resolve ways to find short-term relief as well as permanent reforms,” Senator Kenny said.
