Senate Republicans are tired of Trenton Democrats raising taxes and making residents foot the bill for their reckless spending.

On NJ Spotlight News, Senate Republican Budget Officer Declan J. O'Scanlon Jr. (R-13) expressed the Senate GOP’s calls for Governor Murphy to embrace our long-ignored ideas to improve affordability in New Jersey.

As residents struggle with the highest property taxes in the country, the Murphy Administration introduced NJ Transit fare hikes and turnpike toll increases, with the latter beginning next month.

The Senate Republicans have been sounding the alarm on the affordability crisis and continued budget mismanagement by the Trenton Democrats. Unfortunately, residents are seeing the result of the State's one-party rule, as the GOP is fighting for taxpayers and for a seat at the table.

Another year of sky high property taxes for homeowners.

Rather than reduce taxes, control government spending, or commit to economic growth policies, Trenton has turned to subsidized government housing and imposing even more senseless state mandates on municipalities.

Over the years, Trenton has relentlessly undermined the ability of local governments to operate effectively and independently. Weakening residents’ ability to make community-driven decisions through their local officials is not how the system is supposed to work.

"The [NJ Transit] fare increase proposal — which would raise fares 15% in July and 3% annually for an indefinite amount of time after that — comes as the agency faces a $120 million fiscal cliff in the coming budget cycle and a $917 million gap a year later."

Taxpayers and commuters deserve better. NJ Transit has scheduled 10 in-person hearings for this fare hike, but are not offering virtual attendance options for commuters to participate ‼️

Governor Murphy and Trenton Democrats treat hard-working New Jerseyans like a bottomless bank account, passing bills with enormous financial costs that end up being the taxpayers' burden. Enough is enough.

Senate Republican Budget Officer Declan J. O'Scanlon Jr. (R-13) and Senate Republicans won’t stop fighting for better stewardship of taxpayer dollars to improve affordability in the Garden State.

Senator Vince Polistina (R-2) was featured on NJ Spotlight News to discuss his newly introduced legislation that would suspend tolls for motorists diverted to the Atlantic City Expressway when Route 40 is closed due to flooding.

This legislation is important for those impacted by the frequent flooding, including travelers to and from , as well as the residents of West Atlantic City.

“They should not have to pay additional money because a State road is flooded,” said Polistina.

LISTEN: Legislative District 12’s newest Senator, Owen Henry, is fighting for our students to receive the education they deserve and for our schools to receive the State funding they need.

The Senate Education Committee heard testimony from schools and parents today regarding the unfairness of the State’s school funding formula and the need for it to be fixed. Taxpayers and municipalities should not be footing the bill for what Trenton has broken.

Senator Carmen Amato and Assemblymen Brian Rumpf and Greg Myhre of the 9th Legislative District are calling on the State Board of Public Utilities (BPU) to reject a recent petition filed by New Jersey Natural Gas that would increase heating bills by 24% for utility customers.

"Approving the rate increase would blatantly deviate from the Board's Mission Statement to ensure affordable rates to all members of the public who seek such services," said the Delegation in a letter sent to BPU President Christine Guhl-Sadovy.

Senate Republicans are working hard every day to improve the lives of all New Jerseyans. A bill sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-30) passed the Senate Commerce Committee this week that would help individuals entering long-term care facilities cancel their cable, phone, and internet services without incurring early termination fees.

Early termination fees are built into many contracts for cable, phone and internet service. A new bill advancing in the New Jersey Senate would prohibit service providers from imposing those fees on certain people suffering hardships.
