Scutari To Co-Chair Tax Reform Panel On Public Worker Benefits

TRENTON – Senator Nicholas P. Scutari, D-Union, Middlesex and Somerset, made the following comments after being named co-chair of the Joint Committee on Public Benefits Reform by Senate President Richard J. Codey and Assembly Speaker Joseph J. Roberts Jr.

“I look forward to the opportunity to address in substance the challenge of reforming our pension and benefits system. In doing so, we hope to reduce a skyrocketing liability that hampers all levels of governments’ ability to plan prudently and eliminate the long-term mortgage on our future. We need a system that is fair both to hardworking public employees and to New Jersey taxpayers.”
