Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg Praises Budget Agreement


TRENTON – “The budget agreement today represents a sensible compromise between the Legislature and the governor. I want to thank Governor Murphy, Senate President Sweeney and Speaker Coughlin for working past their differences and finding common ground. Compromise is never easy. Despite some differences, we were never far apart on what we wanted to achieve – to fund core Democratic priorities that lift up the disenfranchised, the poor, the disabled and those who need advocates in government. This is a good budget. It is time now for us, as Democrats, to work together.”
