Kenny To Co-Chair Constitutional Reform Panel

TRENTON – Senate Majority Leader Bernard F. Kenny Jr., D-Hudson, made the following comment today after being named co-chair of the Joint Committee on Constitutional Reform and Citizens Property Tax Convention.

“This is a distinguished committee of very capable legislators and I look forward to a bipartisan review of all the constitutional issues involved in meaningful tax reform.

“My hope at the outset is that we can effect meaningful property tax reform in the coming months without the necessity of a convention later.

“The immediate task for this panel is to consider what possible changes to our tax structure require constitutional amendments to be considered by voters.”
