Senate Budget and Appropriation Committee Chairman Paul Sarlo Praisee Budget Agreement

Senator Paul Sarlo congratulates Congressman Donald Norcross on his succession to the U.S. House of Representatives.

TRENTON – “I want to thank Governor Murphy, Senate President Sweeney and Speaker Coughlin for their persistence in working out a budget compromise. As the chairman of the committee charged with holding hearings on the budget, I am aware firsthand the challenges they faced. Budgets are about choices. We have had our differences about how to fund core Democratic priorities, but we were never far apart on what those priorities were – fair school funding, services for the disabled, advocacy for victims of domestic violence, health care and so much more. There are winners in this budget – the people of New Jersey.”
