Steinhardt attacks Murphy over plan to continue making pension payments

By Nikita Biryukov, June 30 2020 2:16 pm

Republican State Chairman Doug Steinhardt attacked Gov. Phil Murphy over his intent to make a full pension payment this quarter on Tuesday.

“If a reasonable person made a list of 100 things the state of New Jersey should invest in, you would probably see important agenda items like aid to small businesses, veterans, our children’s education or help for more than 1.3 million unemployed New Jerseyans,” Steinhardt said.

Murphy’s administration has previously said that payment would go out on time.

“Only Governor Murphy and the public sector union bosses that own him would prioritize a more than half billion dollar payment into the State’s broken public pension system,” Steinhardt said. “It’s just another example of Phil Murphy’s private sector pain paying for public sector gain.”
